the ocean calms us

March 24, 2013 |  Category:   life outings








The air was amazingly still at Jones Beach. With the sun warming us, we didn’t feel cold at all and it was nice seeing the ocean again for the first time since August. Evidence of Sandy destruction lingered, with all the facilities and concession stands fenced off and 4 of the 6 fields closed. There were dunes where there were none before, as tops of buried wooden fences peeked up from sandy mounds. Despite that, it was nice to see that there might be beaches to enjoy this summer as repairs get underway. We weren’t really sure what to expect from those aerial photos we saw 5 months ago after the storm, but one after another we are seeing announcements of hard hit areas reopening – The Statue of Liberty, Coney Island, Fairway Market in Red Hook – while others like Ellis Island remain closed indefinitely.

        isn’t it funny how life is like that? the give & the take? the have & have not? love both oceans, & even though they are both so connected, they are both so very different. hope things are warming up out there. xo
