Good Fences ~ Edition 130 ~

On September 4th as the Jersey Shore prepared for hurricane Hermine,
this was the view of our beautiful beaches here.

It was Labor Day weekend and the beaches were closed.
No swimming, no sunbathing, no admittance on to the beaches for any reason.

But that did not keep the people away.
It was a gorgeous day and the boardwalks were crowded.

The new dunes that were planted after 
Super Storm Sandy
have been replenished several times.
I have not been down to the beach but apparently there was a lot of beach erosion from Hermine.
I'll have to visit for some pictures to see if these protection fences did their job!!

Sharing today's fence images with my good friend
Theresa at The Run*A*Round Ranch

  5. Love those skies. We get that kind of blue only in the winter when the humidity gets below 1000%. Summer with the humidity, we get a robin egg blue which is nice too. But to look up at that azure is a treat.

  12. Those beautiful dune fences are one of the memories that will always stay with me from our one (sob, only) trip up the Eastern Coast. I hope they WERE good fences and did their job.

  14. How nice to see you beach. Dunes are so important for protecting the land against potential ravages by storm waves from the sea. We, here in Holland, can't without dunes. What a beautiful blue sky!

  16. I'd love to walk on that boardwalk. Too far away though. I live inland and very rarely see the ocean unless it is in Oregon or California.

  27. The beach looks great, such a shame that the last weekend of the summer couldn't have been spent on the beach but I can understand being careful and ready for anything. Hope that everything is in good shape the next time you go down.

  28. I like the idea that they put up protection fances to protect the beaches. You did get some great photos of it. The beach looks so good. It has been such a long time since I have been on a beach. Blessings and hugs!

  29. I thought it looked like that grass was planted, rather than growing naturally. I still envy you the beach!
