a barnacle-covered camera housing

Children cleaning up a beach in northern Taiwan discovered a barnacle-covered camera housing among the debris. Inside, the Canon G12 camera was in perfect condition, and even its battery had held its charge. Their teacher, Park Lee, fired up the camera and discovered pictures of a woman on vacation, as well as photos at specific locations in Japan. The last photo was time-coded to September 7, 2015.

Lee posted the pictures on the Internet, and they soon went viral. Less than 48 hours later, the owner was identified as Serina Tsubakihara, a student at Sophia University in Tokyo. She had been vacationing on the island of Ishigaki, 155 miles east of Taiwan, when she lost the camera while scuba diving more than two years earlier. Park returned the Canon to its grateful owner.
