Halloween 2021

Halloween Island Time – Thoughts and Pictures by UseppaGin – It was a Halloween celebration island style, laid back and all inclusive. Almost everyone on Useppa was there, but our numbers are still small enough that it felt like family. Thank you to the Collier Staff and the Front Office for making it happen. Other pictures are of daylight Islanders and an early morning goodbye to Indomitable Donna off for some needed surgery.

Columbus Weekend 2021

Columbus Weekend and More, Island Style – Thoughts and Pictures by UseppaGin – It’s that soft sunset time of year between the fun of summer and a new season beginning. There is just the right amount of people – not too few, not too many. Each smile matters. Pictures show friendship and mischief. Island bees have a new home. The pool is redone. New faces join the Useppa family. New relationships begin. Old friends leave, but their spirits stay. Dragonflies, lizards, children, and grownups enjoy the island. It’s Fall on Useppa.

Fall Begins 2021

Island Fall Begins – Thoughts and Pictures by UseppaGin – Temperatures are still warm. Palm fronds stay green. Children play in the pool. Sunrises and sunsets are tapestry skies embroidered in color. It’s a quiet time between summer busyness and the return hustle and bustle of seasonal residents. Birds claim the docks. On foot, in the air, in a kayak, we are all part of the Island family.
