I was thinking about last year's tree when I noticed another dead tree lying on the beach a week or so ago, but I never propped it up. Then a few days ago I was walking near the Pony Pen beach when I saw this year's tree. It was already planted in the sand, festooned with seashells, a flipflop, a Milk Dud box, and assorted other items.
The tree is a visual testament to islanders' creativity and quirkiness. Take a beach walk down by the Pony Pen and add a seashell, some seaweed, or another treasure.

Don't worry, we'll undecorate the tree after Christmas.
