Lee Stocking Island

After Christmas, we went down to Lee Stocking Island, where the Perry Institute for Marine Science is located. We had a nice introduction to the institute by Eric, the island manager (originally from New Hampshire), but there were no researchers there at the time. We hiked some of the island trails, passing by Coconut Beach (Pretty, isn’t it? And yes, we got some coconuts to eat) on our way to Perry’s Peak, the highest point in the Exumas. Offshore of the island was this pair of little islet, appropriately named Tug and Barge – don’t they look like it!
