THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE BOWLING ON THE GREEN IS A FAVORITE ISLAND SPORT Cricket, tennis, swimming, surfing, and fishing are other popular outdoor recreations. In making up bowling teams, islanders and non-islanders (those not born on Lord Howe but now residing there) form opposing sides (see text, page 124). Norfolk Island pines (right background) grow to large size. IN LIEU OF HOTELS LORD HOWE FURNISHES GUESTHOUSES Back of the tennis court is Pine Trees, one of two hostels for visitors. Since the community revenue from the palm industry is limited, newcomers are forbidden to become residents and enter into the sharing system. Visitors are called "temporaries"; a few have even become "permanent temporaries."
