Here's a short movie of the Dig site.
click on picture to play.
...I posted a couple of videos, downloaded from photobucket, too, but they are very grainy!! I guess when I shot them from my digital camera, I must have used the wrong 'pixels' or 'speed' or SOMETHING, because when it was enlarged, you can see all those 'squares'....

I remember reading on the DIS somewhere that the tree has sneakers in it because it's a tradition for the boat drivers to throw a pair of shoes in it when they retire. Is that right?

All right, all right...I'll buy the retirement sneaker theory, but since employees seem to love urban legends who knows what the deal really is.

Perhaps it's a trophy tree left over from the bird island that they no longer take care of. Maybe it's like how people mount antlers on their wall--maybe the tree belongs to a huge albatross(or odd type vulture) as a warning to all who pass .

The only snakers up here are the ones on the telephone wires and I'm not so sure about those either.
