Good Fences ~ Edition 2 ~

I spent my summers in Seaside Park...
if the sun was out, we were on the beach, this beach.
 
Every Summer, I played here, at Funtown Pier, in Seaside Park.
It's an eclectic, lively seashore community at the Jersey Shore.
Five months after Super Storm Sandy, in March 2013, it looked like this.
A few of the historic attractions survived, most had not.

But if you turned to the right, it looked like this.
The water was calm and beautiful...it had never been a prettier blue.
The waves were soft and diamonds danced with the ocean.
From this view, nothing had changed and yet I knew,
nothing would ever be the same.

I am super excited to be sharing my views of the snow fence with
for Good Fences.
Stop by and consider joining in the fun, any fence or gate will do!!

  8. Oh, that ocean!! So sparkly! Love how "focusing" on a fence brings to light thoughts and stories that aren't actually related to it, just prompted by it! I hope they sure up some of those historical places!!

  10. There's nothing more beautiful than the Jersey shore -- even with the mess that Sandy left!

  11. It's so tragic all that has happened to that community, and seems to keep on happening. Your shots are beautiful and I love your description! It's wonderful that you have such happy memories. No storm can take those away.

  13. There is little quite so pretty as an east coast beach fence. Up until a few years ago, I never knew about (or much thought about!) the difference between east and west coast beach fences, but there is most definitely a difference in style.

    This one is such a beauty, Debbie.
