Old Family, Friends & More

Good News & Bad

Old friends were back on Useppa.  New friends discovered the island. Residents returned for another season. Family reunions introduced new members. Stories were swapped, old memories shared, and new memories made. Smiles tell that story. A dead Loggerhead Turtle was found just off the beach. Frank and Laura Stokes from the Fire Department had help pulling it ashore. Florida Fish and Wildlife investigated. The turtle was probably killed by a boat, shell cracked by a propeller. A thumbs down and grimace from young Garfield Beckstead sums up the way we all felt.
