Old Friends & Young Faces
Ten Years Ago On Useppa
Old Friends with Young Faces
Photographs and Story by UseppaGin
Ten years ago Hurricane Charlie was still a recent memory. Houses needed to be rebuilt, the Collier Inn required a major renovation effort. Landscaping needed major work. Working together, we did it all.
These pictures are from a collection of old 2005 Useppa web pages. Familiar faces with a few less wrinkles, grownups who were once island children, croquet on the beach, a Useppa Yacht Club picnic, friends no longer with us, and a gator visitor who added a bit of adventure to a lazy summer day.
Our next posting will include the Collier re-opening one year after the storm, more memories and more Useppans.
