: Surf City on Long Beach Island at the Jersey Shore...Going Strong!

Surf City on Long Beach Island at the Jersey Shore...Going Strong!

Nobody but homeowners are supposed to be on Long Beach Island at the Jersey Shore.  And traffic was heavy when I, armed with a BPO order, braved the Route 72 Causeway.  You can get there, at least where I was going. 

The BPO was for Surf City, and I'll tell you this, good job Surf City!  The dune replacement probably saved most of this Long Beach Island Surf City community.

There have been great losses, but the dune replacement project saved this family community.

I was wondering if anything would be left to do a BPO on.

Laura, did you all get the double whammy storms?  The beaches do look beautiful.

Good to know that things are returning to normal...soo many contractors from all over the country have migrated east and hoping that makes things heal more quickly.

Laura, the beach does look great, but is that beach erosion in the second photo.

William, you know the banks...they'll pay to do the silly!

Patricia, yes we got the double whammy...we fared much better than other areas of NJ.  But We're Jersey, Can't Keep Us Down!

Sally & David...some recovery will take much longer.  I'm blessed.

Yes Nick that's beach erosion.  The Army Corps built those dunes up and out, but as they say what man give the Lord takes...and the Lord took them!!
