Photos of our dock and condominiums the morning after Omar.
The eyewall of Category 3 Hurricane Omar missed the islands, as it veered further east before it reached our island, Tortola.
We are on the south-facing side of the island, which was protected from the worst winds, due to the hurricane's direction as it approached us from the west.
Leaves and plant debris are scattered through the yard, and my studio has a new leak in the window frame. That is the only damage I've found so far. My friend Kim walked along a north-facing beach this morning, and said the water was brown and the beach was scattered with debris. Not surprisingly, there are reports of landslides and fallen rocks around the island.
We have plenty of work ahead of us today, including removing the plywood you see in the photo.
We're thankful to be safe, and look forward to resuming normal routines now!
