Couples makes rest area for walkers

All summer-long pedestrians along Sandy Beach Road have had a place to stop and enjoy the view. Mel and Sherry Stockton, of 903 Sandy Beach, set a couple of chairs and a home-made "rest stop" sign in their front yard in June. The view of the mainland on a clear day, of Devil's Thumb and Horn Cliff, is picturesque. "We've met a half-dozen or more people. Travelers come from all over," said Mel Stockton. He added that he doesn't have any idea how many people have stopped to enjoy the view, but he did say that every once in a while the position of the chairs will change slightly. "What's kind of cool is that the chairs have never been taken," Stockton said.
