Hurricanes have been a reality for a very long time. Some years are harder than others in this regard. Trials will come but it is how you deal with them and strive to recover which make the difference. In 2004 two hurricanes passed over almost the same section of Martin County, FL among many other areas. These hurricanes may have been the first to come this way in about 50 years. I visited Ft. Pierce, FL in the area a month after the second storm. Here is some of what I saw.

Kitesurfers and windsurfers go at it, seeking fun on the water. Nothing new there.

George, a Ft. Pierce regular shows off a vintage duct tape optimized directional and Wipika kite. You can see storm damaged buildings in the background and George like so many others carries on. That is what it is about.

Sunset is coming on

Lots of hard work and drive needed in the rebuilding. And, yet if you went there today you would likely find few signs of that time.

A new day
