I have been all over pics posted and none include this area. We have the 2 story Octagon across the canal from Lagoon Saloon and havent been able to contact anyone who has seen the extent of damage. Any info would be appreciated. We are trying to figure out if there is enough left to stay in or if we should make other arrangments for someplace to stay when we come to help with relief efforts.

Hey riverdoc,
Isn't Soulshine now Serenity or v/v?
There was a pic in "Tony Rath flew over..."
I'm not sure if you can tell much but...

Soulshine is in Placencia and Serenity is north of the airstrip, between Rum Point Inn and Roberts Grove.
I have not been able to see the details on either resort. The main buildings for Serentiy seem to still be standing but, I can't see the details in the p[ictures available for Soul Shine.

please forward your e-mail address to me.

I have a photo of the area in question.

I own the yellow house w/ green trim between your house and Soulshine.

I have been advised by friends on the ground that my house is gone except for the concrete first floor.

By looking at the pic, you did not fare any better...sorry for the bad news.

I will send the pic to you once I have your email address. You can send it to bobby.grimes@parsons,com

Lance and Family, Lee and Missy, the new crew at Sugar Caye (Lagoon Saloon) and Penny Dial are all OK.

I have seen no info on Soulshine or the Vickstroms.

Hi the pitts

I have the overflight picture of an area which includes the area west of the soccer field in Placencia.
I enlarged the photo to 300% so that I could get a better look.

I am not sure which house your talking about
but there are several houses still standing in the area.

If your talking about the little street that
starts at the middle soccer ground and then
goes west you may be in pretty good shape.

send your email address and I will forward the pic to you. bobby.grimes@parsons.com

Good Luck
