While Nobody’s Looking

While Nobody’s Looking, Summer at the Useppa Service Department – Words and pictures by UseppaGin – Most resident Islanders are away during the summer months. Local Islanders boat over on weekends. But while Useppans are away, caretaking never ends. In fact so much has been going on that pictures are in order. The Reception Center and Fitness Center have been painted. Landscaping has been working from one end of the island to the other removing palm fronds, getting rid of coconuts a.k.a. Hurricane Missiles, and removing debris. A golf cart parking area is now next to the Tarpon Bar. Work was done on the Spa. All the water lift stations are being serviced and repaired, and pipes are being mapped. Eleven large metal containers in the Service Yard allow for removal of construction debris. Electrical work and replacements for the RO plant are being installed and there will be major upgrades to the electrical system. A big Useppa thank you to all the men and women making this happen.

Summer Pig Roast 2019

Pig Roast Family Fun – Pictures and Words by UseppaGin – The food was delicious but the family fun was even better. In the pool, down at the Bocce Court, along the pathway on Calusa Ridge, and in boats at the Marina, everyone enjoyed the last free weekend before school begins and reality returns. Tides were high. Fish were biting. Kids and grownups alike were swimming. Thank you to the Collier Staff and all the men and women behind the scenes who make life on Useppa something to treasure.
