Jersey Strong.

What a sad day at the Jersey Shore. Yesterday a fire ripped through Seaside Boardwalk and destroyed more than 50 businesses and many iconic shops. We just rebuilt the boardwalk after Sandy and now everything is gone….again. I know we will rebuild and we will come together as a community- we always do. I live about 25 minutes away from Seaside and I am prepared to donate and help in any way they need it. This brings me right back to Sandy and I wanted to share some pictures I took 1 day after the storm in Belmar. Belmar boardwalk has been rebuilt since then BUT there are still no buildings on the beach. We were able to buy our badges and snacks as well as go to the bathroom in trailers. Thank you so much to all of the first responders, fire fighters, and anyone else who came in to help. Jersey strong and proud!!

Can you imagine the strength of the storm to move this across the street?

This was the day before Sandy. My husband and Bradley...insane.

even in all the destruction...so much beauty at the beach.
