Ocean Grove Pier…Before Sandy
This past summer, we spent a crazy weather day down at Ocean Grove on the Jersey shore. I had been to the town before, but hadn’t been on the beach until now, and it was a great beach! Heather and I enjoyed about a hour of sun and fun in the waves…until the storm clouds rolled in out of nowhere and the rain started. A light rain turned into downpours with thunder and lightning, so while our beach day was pretty much over, we still had a fun day with family going out to eat and wandering around town.
I took this photo of the main pier at Ocean Beach while it was still nice and sunny. Unfortunately, the power of superstorm Sandy did quite a number on this pier and pretty much destroyed half of it, including the building. Here are a couple photos that show the pier during the storm and after the storm (in the after photo, notice the jetty rocks on the right side, which are the rocks in the before photo above behind the pier…):
