All through the week I had tried to find internet service or call someone with no luck. My cell appears to have been damaged when the power first surged and it doesn't hold a charge for long. And there weren't any resources around.
I was so worried about all of you worrying about me. And Hope.
I don't take our friendship lightly.
I have so many stories to tell but my internet and phone service is still dicey so I'm going to post a few pics I got from NJ.com and from the Keyport Boat Club. Pics of places I love that are forever changed.
The Seaside Heights roller coaster.
A beautiful home in Union Beach that I have driven past and admired many times.
Flooded and burned homes in Breezy Point. I have spent many summer weekends there.
This was a main road near me.
Hot Dog Bobs - I've posted pics from here of the giant inflated hot dog and Fourth of July decorations
The Inn at the marina. I sat by that window and had brunch many times.
The corner where the Keyport mosaic stood. The trailer office for the boat ramp was pushed all the way up the street by the force of the wind and water.
These last few shots are all of my beloved marina. The spot where I had early morn coffee with the "old guys", where I fed the birds and watched the sky and waves and boats.
People drive about looking for devastation to point at and take photos of.
I have not ventured around much, after 3 hours on a gas line you don't feel like driving.
I leave my camera at home. I saw a woman screaming at a car full of people who had stopped to take photos of her home. She was crying and telling them "this is my home, this is my home".
I love youse guys
