Boca Grande saw its share of damage from Ian last week.

Trees are toppled over and some roadways still have standing water.

The Gasparilla Inn has wooden planks placed on its windows and what appears to be a light post has fallen over.

There is a high water sign on Gasparilla Road as you enter Boca Grande.

On Boca Grande, frequent visitors mourn what is now gone.

What appears to be a cell phone tower crashed onto Hudson’s Bakery. Its owner taped a sign to the door that said she was OK, “just remodeling.”

At the Barnacle, the owner and her children have been giving out chainsaw blades since Friday.
