EARLY SUMMER ON LONG BEACH ISLAND
We have been back at the New Jersey Shore for almost 2 months and I have totally neglected my blog. Thus far the weather here has been very "iffy" and my camera has not left our house very often. But in spite of our late arrival, I did get the flowers planted before the rains settled in. Generally it has been abnormally cool on our island for this time of the yer, with cold water and a strong south breeze, but if one wants some heat all one has to do is cross the bridge to the mainland. We know it will be coming.
However, when we arrived, anxious to see the recovery of the beach after the devastation brought upon most of the Island by "Superstorm Sandy" last November we were pleasantly surprised. The beach size was ample with the addition of a pseudo smaller island in the water at low tide.
