27. Lost/Forgotten Items


At Playa Barqueta in Chiriqui Province, Panama there is almost always driftwood around for the treasure hunters to collect. A friend who owns a beautiful house on the beach, found a large, not particularly interesting piece that washed up in front of her home. She stood it upright and decided to use it as a base for lost flip flops and beach sandals that get caught amidst the debris where we both enjoy hunting for interesting and unique treasures that nature usually provides. And so her Flip Flop Tree was born, created by nature and lost items of man.

  1. There sure are a lot of people leaving the beach wearing only 1 flip flop down there!! πŸ™‚ Good find!


    • Well, Paul left BOTH his flip flops at the base of the tree when we left on Sunday. Both of them died simultaneously of different afflictions! I almost had to leave one of my flip flops behind as the other had been swept off my foot by an unexpected wave. However, I managed to grab it in time. πŸ™‚


  2. I love it. It shows how our “footprint” makes its mark in nature. Some would consider this an art form. We could create stories to go with the flip flops!
