Remember that hill a mile away from the house I  stayed at? This is it viewed from the beach.

This is the windward side of the island. The wind always blows in from the ocean (from the northeast) and the storms always hammer this side of the island. I'm just guessing that all this cobble was put here to control beach erosion. I love the sound the waves make as they recede over the small rocks.

The other side of the island (the south west side) is where the tourist spots are located. Less wind, less rain, and calmer seas.
