The Hawaiian Archipelago
Aqua-azure waters are edged by a pristine beach and heavens of glorious clouds. A lone glass ball fishing float ebbs gently at the shoreline. For centuries fishermen have used glass ball floats to keep their nets buoyed upright when fishing in the ocean. Occasional storms detach the floats from the net, setting the floats free to travel the sea current. The floats can spend many years in the ocean. At last these glass balls make landfall on distant shores.
