Lynn and Doug who live right next to Dave's old house still have their house standing. Doug said he was flying there from Colorado today to survey the damage. I imagine that BTL is out for now but you may be able to reach them at [email protected]. We own the light blue house across from Manatee Inn.

Suzanne:
I got an e-mail from Lynn Jackson this a.m. and she says all that is left of your place is the floor. We stayed there this year and have property a bit to the south of you. If you have an e-mail address you can contact me at [email protected] and I will forward her account to you. Geri

if dutch treat is gone, do you know if Calbert Gardiner and Donna Eiley's house is still standing? They own Nite Wind by the dock but their house is right next to the 'dutch treat'.
thx for any info.

If you're facing the water and looking at Dutch Treat, the house directly to the left is badly damaged. Only the floor and two walls are standing.

Dear Dutch Treat,
Calbert and Donna's house is OK, but their Nitewind building at the point was blown down. Calbert is my son-in-law's (Chris Small or Tio)oldest brother, and I run a sea kayaking business out of Placencia. I just returned from Placencia to Michigan this past Sunday after flying down the day after the hurricane. My husband, Joe, is still there until next week. I live on the lagoon side of Placencia, and the roof and second story of my house were blown off. My kayak storage room on the lower level was left and the kayaks are OK. I will return to run kayak trips from mid-December to mid-June.
Right now, we are living in a tent on my back porch. There is no water, no electricity and no phone. My husband does have a cellular phone on him which he is recharging with a generator, so it is off and on. His phone number is 011-501-190251. You are welcome to try and reach him to have him check things out for you.
Although I didn't get to the front beach, I heard that all the beachfront houses had been destroyed, and that all those in your vicinity were blown back and piled up in front of Mr. Berty's house. Some of the houses were even blown to the lagoon side of the road. Dave Rabren's fence was washed away as was the sidewalk. The road is now cleared, and clean-up seems to be going fairly fast. I'm very sorry about your house.
Keep in touch.

I just returned from Placencia and have a picture of what is left of your house. I can send it to your email address if you like.

Finally some word about the lagoon side. Does anyone know what's going on with the tall house with Rasta stripes in which Leslie Vernon was staying, or the homes newly built and for sale by the Bella Beach owners? Good to hear Clent Whitehead OK, and wonder if Mother Oceans being resurrected or sold?
