Ocean Grove 5 Months after the Storm

Living near the Jersey Shore has really changed my perspective of Hurricane Sandy. If this happened a year ago, I would’ve been sad, but not really experienced the damage. Now that I live in Monmouth County, all it takes is a ten minute drive and I see the destruction. It’s overwhelming. So recently, I have been exploring with my Husband. We recently drove through the highlands area and saw a house that was missing some of it, we then moved on to sea bright where the sand dunes are higher than houses.

On Sunday we went to Ocean Grove, our favorite spot for lunch and an afternoon off, only this time, there was a different feel as we walked on the sand dunes, saw the fishing pier broken, and a boardwalk that no longer existed.
