It must be unpleasant to have to leave your flip flops there. If you are worried that your flip flops or any of your footwear will break or be damaged, you should hold them while you walk on the beach sand. Let your feet feel the soft and warm sand, or you can wet your feet with sea water. If not, maybe you should leave it there, to be toyed with by the sea at high tide or buried in the sand. My last post gave me the idea to browse through flip-flops and shoes that eventually had to be left there because they couldn't be used anymore. I think it's interesting to be a stock image collection. I think there are a lot of people who are forced to come home from the beach barefoot. Hope you like this collection. Thank you!
