Coconut Island was a small, barrier island covered with trees. Even though they were "not native" trees as some complained, they held the soil and island in place. I remember Hidaway Beach tenents viciously complained that their view was compromised and ordered that the trees be removed. That was unconscionable. Not only did the trees hold the island in place, it was a refuge for birds. Also, as a barrier island, it helped to keep Hideway's beach from eroding from the wind and serf. This is now your problem and you should pay for any replenishment. We, the taxpayers should not be charged for your arrogant mistake!
