A home close to the beach, what can be more wonderful?
I don’t swim and the riptide is very strong here, so unless you are a good swimmer and the lifeguards are on duty, it’s not advisable to even try. I can go in up to my knees if I want.
I would be contented just to sit and watch the waves. 🙂
That’s exactly what I did today! I haven’t been all season and wanted to see and smell the water. Since my community is still rebuilding from Hurricane Sandy in 2012, everything isn’t completely back to normal yet.
Sandy really made a mess. Recovery is slow. I hope we’ll get there sooner.
Recovery is way too slow. Boardwalk is finally rebuilt as of last month and festivals are coming back, so I guess that’s progress.
That’s good news! 🙂
Yes it is, thank you.
Beautiful beach! We were in Iceland right after Hurricane Sandy. The wind gusts reached the island where several people were hospitalized with injuries from getting knocked over or into things. Our hotel lost its glass entry doors when a strong wind gust shattered them. I can’t even imagine what it was like for the people right in the epic center of the storm.
It was horrible, no power, no streetlights, or heat for two weeks in winter. We had squirrels in the attic. Most stores were closed, so food was given out at various locations, we were under curfew. Not a happy time at all. Luckily, we didn’t get flooded out and my brother would bring supplies during the daylight hours. I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.
I remember it from the news, but I know that you had to be there to truly appreciate the seriousness of it all. What I have a hard time understanding is how it could take this long to get everything repaired and people the help they need.
You know it’s the bureaucracy of it all. Money is put aside for repairs by government then it isn’t. Also it depends on if they find the neighborhood important enough to bother with. And yes I could not have appreciated life now if not for that experience. I couldn’t imagine homelessness during that time.
Well said. I sometimes wish for a magic wand to make changes in the world which would benefit a broader range of human beings.
And scream “Empathy!” , that would be my wish.
Aren’t you lucky! The beach looks crystal clean as well.
The water hasn’t been warm enough to go into the water and like I mentioned in earlier reply, the riptide is very strong on this end of the beach.
Jealous, please send me fresh seafood!
Ha ha. There’s no commercial fishing done on this end of the beach, that’s further East on Long Island Sound. But individuals do fish on this beach, lots of mussels and sandshark. You don’t live near any water?
The nasty Ohio River is basically in my front yard, but nothing beats fresh ocean seafood!
Yeah you need to visit Long Island about twenty miles away, that’s the hot spot in Summer. Anything surrounding Long Island Sound besides the snooty Hamptons.
