Memorial Buoy Tree

Neat tree, nice tribute. There's a little park with a large windmill that you can go into right next to it.

Neat oddity with great story.

The lobster buoy tree was built as a memorial to late local resident Jimmy Filliman, who built similar trees in his front yard every year and lit them up at Christmastime.
