To the person who stole my slippers from Baby Beach the other week. You must have really needed them since they were two years old and falling apart. I left them in the sand with everyone else’s. And though it may have appeared that everyone had already left the beach, my car was still parked in the lot and I was walking the beach to watch the sunset. Of course, you’d never know the sentimental value they had since I was wearing them during my wedding on the beach two years ago. Back in the day, if you left something at the beach you could come back the next day and it’d still be there. Maui has changed.
