I had prepared a blog post for today, the first anniversary of Hurricane Dorian. In it, I described the depth of pain and loss suffered by so many, and the struggles and frustrations faced by Abaconians over the past year.
But you know what? Today is not the day for that.
Today, we remember and honour the lives lost, including those whose names or fates we will never know. We send love and condolences to all who knew and loved them. They will never be forgotten.
Thanks to Thomas Bowers, who came to Green Turtle Cay to help repair the teacher’s residence and other structures, for today’s photo.
A number of folks have asked, and as you can see, the No Name Cay pigs are doing well following Dorian. And while Big O’s Bar & Restaurant suffered some storm damage, they are back up and running – subject to Covid-related shutdowns…
Thanks to Mac and Denise Johnson for today’s photo, taken earlier this year on Green Turtle Cay. This image is a reminder that, as Denise says, some things never change, despite the devastation. Our dump piggies are as cute as ever.
