A beautiful day at Green Turtle Cay’s Gilliam Bay.
Thankfully, both the main house and the outside kitchen – two of Abaco’s oldest remaining structures – survived the hurricane. Unfortunately, however, both were critically damaged.
Several large holes were left in the museum’s year-old cedar-shingled roof and half of the kitchen building roof (also new) is simply gone.
At the height of Dorian’s assault, the western shutters on the museum’s second floor blew out and a number of windows were broken, allowing more water into the building.
Thanks to long-time Hope Town visitor, Kenneth Kooyenga, for this photo of a sunset reflected off one of the Albury’s ferries washed ashore by Hurricane Dorian.
Thanks to Abaco lover Linda Waller for this photo of a fun fishing and beach day with Green Turtle Cay’s Brendal’s Dive Center.
Got post-Dorian Abaco shots to share with our readers? Email them to amanda (at) littlehousebytheferry (dot) com, and put “READER PHOTOS” in the subject line.
Be sure to let me know who should get photo credit and where and roughly when the image was taken. And if you’ve got a business or personal website or page you’d like me to link to, please include it.
Thanks to Vandea Stuart for this photo of seagulls in mid-flight, taken in Sandy Point.
I’m pretty sure those little orange orbs are insect eggs — anyone know what kind?
A lot of you have emailed to ask how the residents of Piggyville fared during Hurricane Dorian. I’m pleased to report that they are alive and well.
Though I haven’t been able to get there to check it out for myself, I understand that Big O’s restaurant on No Name Cay has now reopened, and that their food is delicious!
Thanks to Green Turtle Cay’s Sundowners for today’s reader photo. Sundowners was completely destroyed by Hurricane Dorian, but owners Brian and Caroline Sawyer have worked tirelessly to rebuild this gorgeous little spot where you can enjoy Abaco’s stunning sunsets.
Thanks to Hope Town’s Donnie Maura for this beautiful sunset photo!
Of all the photos I’ve taken since Hurricane Dorian, this is perhaps my favourite, because it so clearly illustrates the resilience of Abaconians.
Though her shop building has been destroyed all around her, Minerva Sawyer of Green Turtle Cay’s Lowes Food Store & Gift Shoppe continues running her business.
Thanks to Deb Kitchener of Yellowtail Cottage on Guana Cay for today’s photo!
Before Hurricane Dorian, we took things like this for granted. We don’t any more. Thanks to Chad Sawyer and his team at Maxwell’s Supermarket and Home Store for everything they’ve done to help Abaco get back on its feet.
Thanks to Linda Waller for this photo, and thanks to Jon Conway and Water Mission, who have been in Abaco since Dorian, helping to make fresh water.
Supported almost entirely by the local business and residential communities, Marsh Harbour Volunteer Fire and Rescue (MHVFR) has protected lives and structures in Abaco for close to 50 years.
In addition to serving as the sole fire and rescue team for central Abaco including Marsh Harbour, Spring City, Murphy and Dundas Towns and more, MHVFR offers vital backup to fire and rescue squads throughout Abaco.
Thanks to Kenneth Kooyenga for this photo taken on Elbow Cay.
