Sadly, I found only one classically abandoned shoe on the beach this year.
I did find several other things of interest that I will post, as well as that interesting shoe.
I didn’t see as many people, especially families, at the lakefront as I have in the past. It’s also possible that people have been more careful with their shoes.

Who can convince the sea to be reasonable?
What’s it get from demolishing blue amber, green granite?
And why so many wrinkles and so many holes in the rock?
— Pablo Neruda, The Book of Questions, translated by William O’Daly
Why do the waves ask me the same questions I ask them?
And why do they strike the rock with so much wasted passion?
Don’t they get tired of repeating their declaration to the sand?
–Pablo Neruda, The Book of Questions, translated by William O’Daly

This wasn’t a good year for finding shoes.
I just wasn’t finding them; and I wasn’t well enough to go to the beach as often as in the past.
However, in the next couple of days, I’ll publish a few posts of this year’s shoes.
