Bonaire N.A., Sea Salt production

The word salary derives from the Middle English salaire,
from the Latin word salarium, a payment made in salt.
The Romans paid the army in salt.
A great book, New York Times best seller list Salt: A World History by Mark Kurlansky, tells why the world is the way it is today because of salt.

2000 years ago this pile of salt would make you a wealthy person.
Beautiful sky in Bonaire. Always very clear and blue.
