Fourth of July Weekend on Useppa 2019

July 8, 2019
Island Fourth of July - Thoughts and pictures by UseppaGin - There are no parades on Useppa to celebrate the 4th of July, no flamboyant displays or fireworks. Flags quietly stand beneath trees planted in honor of friends and family who have died. They mark the entrance to the Collier Inn. They wave from pilings, fences, and pathways. Boats pulling into the Marina display the red, white and blue of the United States. Useppa honors the founding of our country in the gathering of friends and families at the Collier Inn, in the patio pool, fishing off Island docks. In times when there is so much political disagreement, on Useppa we humbly celebrate how lucky we are and wish our country Happy Birthday.
