Took a spin along the Jersey Shore last week and was amazed. The destructive path of Hurricane Sandy, last October, is still much in evidence. In Point Pleasant 15 foot walls of sand dunes, piles of rubble, that once were seaside cottage homes and million dollar mansions up on stilts still can be easily seen along the long stretch of crystal-blue ocean. Here in Seaside Heights, where we spent a drizzly afternoon walking along the 2 mile stretch of the amusement-orientated boardwalk, the wide expanse of walkway is back, but Casino Pier and Funtown Pier at either end still have major reconstruction ongoing. There was far more heavy equipment on display then bumper cars, tilt-a-whirls and ferris wheels. "The Place for Family Fun Since 1913" is on the upswing though and will return bigger and better. Even mass destruction can have its silver lining. And the wide slice of Seaside pizza was still delicious!
