Easter Sunrise and Community - Pictures and thoughts by UseppaGin - Before the sun even rises, islanders find their way to the beach. Some sit in golf carts, some on folding chairs in front of the gazebo. In waning darkness, we wait. he gentle music of familiar hymns, hushed greetings, conversations, and welcoming hugs, mark the beginning of Easter on Useppa. We gather in the spirit of community. For thirty-eight years, as the sun rises, grandparents, parents, children, neighbors, friends, and visitors have celebrated the gift of Useppa, the gifts we are in each other’s lives.
