Christy's Beach is a desolate place. The whole island is extremely dry. To see fresh flowing water in a place like that is a real delight. Its a survival instinct. There's a place inside our subconscious that tells us, "yes, we are going to be OK, we can survive here"  There is even one swimming hole in the central valley that is deep enough to dive into.
