Oyster Pond Saint Maarten/St Martin seven weeks later after Irma. Roads are clear but debris and junk are piled high on the sides. Almost every car on the island has at least one window, windshield, or rear window cracked, broken, or missing. Budget Marine was burgled multiple time.
St Martin Yacht Club sustained major damage to club house and junior program but the bar is open! Boats are everywhere, on the rocks on the beaches, beside some roads. The 12 meter boats that tourists can sail on are still on the bottom of Simpson Bay.
On the positive side there is a lot of activity cleaning up and some restaurants and bars are open and more reopening everyday. In general morale is good and islanders are pushing forward but maybe not fast enough to be able to host The Heineken.
