One-Year Ago (05-June-2010) — Bonaire

Gone to See the Caribbean Islands. Semester at Sea Spring 2010 Enrichment Voyage on the MV Explorer. Ultimate Travel Photography Workshop with Michael Mariant. Day 10: Kralendijk, Bonaire.

I found this Fip-Flop graveyard while photographing a lighthouse in Bonaire. I have no idea why all of these shoes are here — and if they were from tourists or locals lost on the beach.
