Couple that with minimal hurricane damage, an incredible month in October and a solid tourism season and you can bet plenty of locals here are smiling from ear to ear. Below are random photos that were taken from some of the best photographers in the biz. Thanks to all who contributed and if you identify someone who’s not credited, please comment and we’ll fix. Photographers include Mickey (2M) McCarthy, Jon Carter, Eddie Compo, Bob Hovey, Jordan Barholomew, Brent Nultemeier and Mikey Sabadic. enjoy….
