Recovery from Juan and a particularly ravenous insect has been slow, but it hasn’t stopped us from visiting, alone or with the hound, or attending the annual Shakespeare in the Park shows. A recent flurry of replanting, some 15,000 new trees, should see the density of green increase in the near future, though a positive consequence of the September 2003 storm for many visitors has been the new view. These days you can stand at the Martello tower and see the harbour for the first time in decades. Enjoy it before the growing trees return the park to its fully forested state.
