This is how one area of the Atlantic Ocean was seen in September of this year during my visit..It is hard to imagine what the area must look like today after
Sandy devastated the area. My friend who lives between the ocean and a bay was evacuated on this past Sunday and as of this time was told it could be another week before she would be able to return home and not knowing what she will find.
This photo shows the fences in place to protect the sand dunes...and they probably no longer exist.
View in full screen please.

So peaceful in this image and an unleashed monster a few days back.
Let us hope that the damage on her house is not too great.

Indeed a beautiful image - like you I have felt enormous sympathy for all those poor people whose lives have been turned upside down.

Nature's strongth always shows us how little we are !! In my country we learn it above all with what happens in our mountains !! Since the permafrost begins to melt, more and more little or big parts of rock are falling down......

Must be viewed in full size.
I do hope your friend has not suffered a huge loss, what we have seen on tv is shocking so many people left with nothing at all.

A perfect picture of past time....

We saw so many pictures and documentaries on television of New York... so many dead people.... so many destroyed houses.... especially Staten island looks bad!!

I hope your friends house is oke, Barb!!
