Soft Summer Days – Thoughts and Pictures by UseppaGin – It’s the quiet time of year on Useppa. Member families and friends spend weekend hours at the pool. Boats tie up at the Marina. Nature frames the day in morning sunshine, unexpected glimpses of rainbows, and the burning colors of August sunsets. Last week Useppa ladies gathered for a lunch to celebrate and reconnect with Annie Pyle who used to work in the Office. Annie took good care of the homeowners but was the best friend of Island dogs and puppies. Four-legged critters knew the way to her office even better than their owners. Being together again was a cause for celebration.
Summer on Useppa – Thoughts and Pictures by UseppaGin – Grandparents, grownup children, and little grands, it’s summer on Useppa. Some members are back on the island for the first time since Hurricane Ian. Sunday croissants and eclairs from the Getaway Café are shared with employees, children, and maybe a lucky resident or two. All ages relax in the pool. Long summer sunsets and evening visits, relaxing patio lunches and dinners at the Collier (Wednesday Night Fried Chicken is back!) … each part of the lazy, quiet time of year. Hurricane recovery continues. There is still much to do, but there is also much to be grateful for.
