He walked west from his home along Bordeaux Mountain Road, climbing over fallen trees and electrical lines, seeing views of Reef Bay and beyond that were now clearly visible through the slim sticks that remained. When Jerry finally made his way through the defeated rain forest to Centerline Road, what he saw was mind numbing.

While everyone else waits for the repair trucks to finally make it to their neck of the island, at least The Lime Inn, the Beach Bar, Joeâ€s Rum Hut, High Tide Bar & Grill, and other nearby businesses are now ser ..read more

Scientists believe that the healthiest coral reefs in the world are the ones with active and happy parrotfish.
