Hurricane Irma hit Tortola dead on with the eye of the hurricane passing right over Carrot Bay! Thank God it occurred during the day light hours for the most part.
Applesurf Villa along with most all of Apple Bay, Carrot Bay and Cane Garden Bay suffered severe flooding, 180 mph plus winds and a couple of hours of really big waves. Here is some history of the storm.
Applesurf Villa flooded to the ceiling of the downstairs Ocean Mist suite with the new windows and doors exploding from the forces. Waves went over the top of the house!
Take a look at the slide below. Irma surgically ripped our heavy Ipe wood deck right off the house.

Little bit of history, back in 2015, the Town of Babylon outlined 25 miles of Great South Bay Kayak Routes with 5 launch points; Amityville Beach, Tanner Park, Venetian Shores Park, Oak Beach Park, Cedar Beach and Gilgo Beach. It offers diverse routes to suit the beginner to advanced paddlers.
The Gilgo Beach launch location is unique in that you can surf some ocean waves in the am, have a delicious lunch at the Gilgo Beach Inn and then take an afternoon paddle on the Great South Bay. It makes for a great summer day!
If you want to try your hand at kayaking, the town offers classes at Tanner Park or you can connect with the Dinghy Shop in Amityville for rentals and lessons, check them out on Trip Advisor.

Going thru photos, organizing digital content more complicated that you would think. Ended up looking at my twitter feed with the photos from the 1st day we were able to get over to Gilgo. Photos were small, think it was internet issues. So put together the slide below from up on Ocean Parkway at the east end of Gilgo Beach where the cut thru is…
