Naturally one of the thrills of renting your own boat is to explore those remote, empty white sandy beaches. We motored on over from George Town to Stocking Island, in particular Starfish(-less) Beach (the Starfish must have been on vacation!). We discovered a crude hut, that seemed to be a meeting place for cruisers. In the back, a trail led us to the 'official' "Shoe Tree Trail", which meandered over to the Ocean Side of the island. WOW! Black jagged cliffs guarding against the most deep blue sea we've ever seen. A tidepooler's dream as well. Empty. Deserted. Ours. Paradise. And, on this trail there really is a tree covered with shoes! Go explore!
