Trunk Bay is the 2nd beach along the way from Maho to Hawksnest. I worked there one summer, running a concession stand 2 days a week. I was working for Doug Cleland who ran the stand for Caneel Bay. That's where I learned to make rum punch in big quantities. We'd feed tour bus crowds. Got to chat with park employees such as Rudy de Windt and Louis; got to watch the mongooses. I recall Carl the bus driver who swore that one can swim just as fast without kicking- I've often thought he was right.
