Halloween on Useppa

Ghosts, Goblins and more met at the Collier Inn’s Izaak Walton Bar to celebrate Halloween.  Children and grownups in costumes prowled around laughing and having fun during Friday’s Happy Hour.

Croquet with grandchildren Friday morning and Golf Croquet on Saturday for members of the Southwest Florida Yacht Club, lunch on the patio by the pool, Bocce and swimming – a weekend of fun for all ages.

Faces of an Island Fall
By UseppaGin

Islanders returning for the season, guests for lunch, children decorating for Halloween, families staying with Island grandparents, a couple married sixty years visiting on a sailboat, Useppa is almost back to normal after Hurricane Irma.  We all have something to be grateful for as another Fall begins.
