Dewees Island Webcams During Hurricane Irma

Posted on

We installed 2 webcams on the island, roughly 35′ or 40′ above sea level.  One faces Southeast over the Impoundment (aka Old House Lagon).  The other faces West-Northwest over Chapel Pond.

These cameras may go up and down during the storm and its aftermath.


Dewees Islanders celebrate July 4 in style

Posted on

I think my kids enjoy the Dewees July 4 traditions more than any other holiday out here on the island.  From decorating the golf cart to running in the beach run, to sand castles and watching fireworks low on the horizon, they love the whole celebration.  My favorite part is the multi-generational aspect of it all, greeting three generations of family friends, playing and laughing and celebrating.  This year, we tucked a creek float into the mix.  If you have any photos you want to share, please send them to me.  In the meanwhile, below is a slideshow of some that I took.  Because not all of your devices will show flash, they are here at smugmug (you can download, print, or order prints) and below in tiny size.
