Friends, Family, Sailing & Bill’s Grille

Friends, Family, Sailing & Bill’s Grille – Comments and photos by UseppaGin – Another Saturday on the waters off Useppa with Island sailors enjoying the morning breezes. Three generations in one family sailed Ragtime. Husbands and wives smiled at each other as though on dates. Purrfect was handed to a new owner, sailed by both. A Committee Boat set the course and Blue Chip’s captain gave a running commentary on race results until he had to go and grill hamburgers and hotdogs for lunch at Bill’s Grille. It doesn’t get any better.

Cold Weather, Warm Smiles

Cold Weather, Warm Smiles – comments and photos by UseppaGin – The weather was too cold for sailing. Only two Sandpipers braved the gray skies and low tides last Saturday, Feb 3rd. But by lunch time, hamburgers on the beach and lunch on the Collier Inn Patio were a perfect match for warming temperatures.
In the winter, there is no better place to be than Useppa Island.

Super Bowl LII on Useppa

Super Bowl on Useppa – photos and comments by UseppaGin – What better place to watch the Super Bowl than on Useppa Island? Boats in the Marina, good food, drinks, and football on the big screen in the Tarpon Bar. Life doesn’t get much better… unless you are a Patriots’ fan.

Island Winter Day

Island Wintery Weather – Comments and photos by UseppaGin – Anchorage off Useppa, croquet, bocce by the beach, the Collier Inn for lunch, sailboats, families, and birds – just another Island winter day. Temperatures cold by Florida standards only make nature’s warmth more intriguing.
