Once we were able to get back on the island, we made our way to the cottages. We were thrilled that they were still standing, but we knew there was quite a bit of damage. The cottage blocking our driveway came from the beach front.
We first needed to get the area in front of the steps cleared of debris. Thanks to a county worker who was cleaning up the school, we were able to have a path cleared to the buildings.
Once we got through the debris, we could not get into the buildings because the locks were frozen.
We came back with a saw and were able to open the doors.
