Father’s Day 2024

Father’s Day Weekend – Thoughts and Pictures by UseppaGin – Summer on Useppa is family time. Most of its residents are gone, and the island is a place where local members come by boat with goodies and children for lunch on the Collier patio and an afternoon by the pool. Rentals are vacation getaways. Multigenerational fun and love are shared in the warm summer sun. Grandparents and grandchildren swim in the pool while parents sit side by side watching and smiling. Little puppies hide under chairs waiting for treats. Useppa’s employees make it all possible. A special thank you to them for all their hard work.

Summer Island Fun 2024

Summer Island Fun – Thoughts and Pictures by UseppaGin – Summer means Tarpon fishing, boats at the Marina, dinners at the Collier, and all day by the pool. During one Happy Hour we celebrated an Islander’s 1st Tarpon. She was given an Izaak Walton pin and posed by the picture of a Collier-era Tarpon angler (Men and women fished in separate classes of Izaak Walton Tournaments, but if the size of their catch was compared, the women won.) Multigenerational family reunions were held. Birthdays were celebrated. Boaters filled the Marina. Members relaxed by and in the pool. It’s only beginning. All ages smile during summer on Useppa.

Memorial Day Weekend Part I 2024

Memorial Day Weekend on Useppa I – Thoughts and Pictures by UseppaGin – …. Reunions and visits of families and friends describe this year’s Memorial Day Weekend on Useppa. For a few, it was their first island holiday. For others, it was a years long tradition, a once little girl now a mother. Flags everywhere honored those who fought and died for our country. It was a weekend in the Useppa family tradition.
