Fall, Fun, and Frolic 2019

A Bird, Bees, Boys, Bocce and More – Pictures and thoughts by UseppaGin – A sea gull by the water’s edge couldn’t move. A beehive in an Island home needed to be moved. Family and friends played games of bocce, and the battery died while a boy ran his three wheeler down the beach. The bird was found Tuesday and rescued by Islanders then taken by “Pet Taxi” to rehab. A beekeeper working with a Useppa contractor and his son Saturday captured the queen and her consorts then gently moved the community to join other buzzing hives on the old air strip. Friday night Happy Hour hosted buzzing Useppans talking about their summers. The pool on Saturday and Sunday was filled with members and guests. Bocce games were played all day. A boy whose three wheeler died was helped by the man taking care of the beach. Members of the Useppa Fire Department oversaw everything and helped when needed. Good-byes were said as friends and family said good-byes. Fall fun and frolic on Useppa.

An October Weekend

Just Another Weekend on Useppa – Thoughts and pictures by UseppaGin – It began on Friday with families fishing, Useppa men and women working, and Happy Hour at the Tarpon Bar. On Saturday there were kids running through the rain playing in puddles while grownups in golf carts tried to stay dry. At night it was dinner at the Collier for some, home cooked meals for others. On Sunday the pool was filled with multiple generations enjoying the freedom to play and relax on an island. Any time on Useppa is special.

Columbus Day Weekend 2019

Fall Hospitality – Pictures and Thoughts by UseppaGin – Smiles everywhere. Families, old and new faces, all ages, spent Columbus Day Weekend on Useppa. The island and its employees welcomed everyone. Happy Hour and dinner in the Collier Inn was the official beginning for some. For others sipping drinks by the pool and just relaxing was the perfect way to end a busy week and begin the three day holiday. On Saturday and Sunday folks came and went from the pool. There were bocce games and children playing chess. Lunch on the Collier Patio and dinner in the Collier Saturday and Sunday was fun for all. Fall has officially begun on Useppa island.

Photographer Rob Hoovis visits Useppa

This summer, Useppa Island Club was lucky enough to have Rob Hoovis on island for a spell. Rob is a very skilled photographer known for his dramatic landscape photography. His night-time work is unprecedented and ability to capture Mother Nature at her most violent or vulnerable is second to none.

Rob has made available to us an extensive bank of photos that the Club will be using to help promote the island to others who relish the beauty that can be regularly found on Useppa, but have yet to experience it personally. It’s hard to find a more photogenic setting and the results, as you’ll see in our gallery below, are impressive.

The photos provided here are just a glimmer into what was accomplished while Rob was on island but the full gallery can be found at this link: Rob Hoovis Useppa Gallery
Professional custom prints can be purchased through the same link and hope you are as impressed as we are with these photos and decide to support his passion.
