By the Bay

In between rain and snow (it is spring?) I went over to the marina and a few other spots along the bay to see how things were going.

The bay is very unusually high in spots. I have read that storm related changes to the underwater topography along with sunken debris is causing this issue.



One hard hit restaurant put up new fencing to protect people from the rubble and that fence has since been knocked down by new flooding.


The business across the road can't get all the debris cleared yet.


A brighter spot up the road - Mike is rebuilding. Since 1961 Mike's Subs was a small fishing shack like building. Great food and great people. He was wiped out by Sandy. 

The new shop is up off street level. A lot of folks are looking forward to the grand re-opening.





Further down, away from the business district the bay looks rough and bits and pieces of destroyed piers hang about.




As I headed back home I was rerouted by a road crew who were prepping to restore some underground systems.

Guess this says it all

Well done to Mike and I hope everyone else affected will be able to recover soon. x

Jackie said...

So sad to see the damage still, but good to see signs of life and rebuilding too. Hope Mike's (and the other businesses) are up and running and making the neighbourhood alive again soon.

I am always happy to see that progress is being made in your part of the world. Let's hope that the coming spring (wait, it's officially here) will bring lots of rebuilding efforts. I look forward to seeing the progress through your post. Don't forget a couple pictures of you and Hope, though. :-)

It is so sad to see the damage, a reminder. But the steps of progress look hopeful.

Ron said...

Dianne, thank you for keeping us posted on the progress being made there. YAHOO...to Mike's Subs! His new place looks awesome!

And as always, dear lady....GREAT photos! Especially liked the ones of the bay.

Happy First Day of Spring!

Yeah I know, can you believe it's spring with this bi-polar weather we're having?

X and hugs to you, Hope, Siren and Isadora!

So much to do before the summer visitors! But looks like they are progressing.

Jay Simser said...

AS always your pictures help me realize what you have and are still going through. It is good to see progress being made. Hugs to all.

Sylvia K said...

This is one year that summer may get here a little too soon for all the people trying to rebuild!! What a year you guys have had! Holding good thoughts for all of you! Hugs to you and Hope!

It's easy for those of us who don't see this every day to believe that it's done. Over. Taken care of. Forgotten. I'm glad that you bring out these reminders of the devastation every now and then. It's not over. Done. Taken care of. At least not enough. It's a process. Hugs to you and that wee beauty of yours. She gives us all Hope.

Thanks for keeping track of all of this. Sandy was one nasty storm. I remember visiting Oakland CA in 1989 (I think) to return some art from an art show I ran. The Bay Bridge had collapsed and the freeway had to be demolished to be rebuilt. It was quite a sight to walk the devestated streets. I hope your home community will return to "normal" as soon as is humanly possible. Gin

The aftermath of Sandy is truly appalling and it has to be so depressing for all of you who are so aware of the continuing damage....Good for "Mike" that he is moving forward in such a positive way....Thank you, dear Dianne, for reminding us all that Sandy may be over but all that happened in her wake, is not....You keep it real, my dear. Here's hoping the weather will give you all a real break there....!

Mike said...

Are you going to be able to get into Mikes Subs?

Happy Elf Mom said...

Slow but sure, looks like things are looking better. :)

LL Cool Joe said...

It must be so hard to see the devastation all the time, so seeing any progress must be wonderful. I'm full of admiration for the people that are dusting themselves down and starting again.

Sometimes the hardest part is knowing where to start.

ZielonaMila said...

Nice photographs, nice views. I am greeting

Bob Bushell said...

Sad news. But, at least you caught it on camera.

HermanTurnip said...

Again, I'm amazed by your pics. This is the sort of thing we don't see in the news. It's cool seeing the small improvements and hearing about the positive attitudes of the locals. It still saddens me to see the obvious rubble, but I know that sooner or later everyone will be back on there feet. Can't wait for that day!

Lowell said...

What a mess, but I'm glad to see there are some folks coming back - especially a good restaurant!

Daryl said...

its a better sign of spring to see the shop's rebirth than even those wonderful daffs everyone is posting

Good for those who hang in there and do what they can and come back stronger than ever.
