The only thing standing on Ocean Grove Beach, NJ

A sure sign that life will go on in New Jersey after Sandy.

“I took this photo the day after Sandy hit. After being unable to access my favorite place, the Asbury Park boardwalk, I walked down to Ocean Grove, and could not believe how devastated the oceanfront was. Benches were strewn around like child’s toys, the pier was practically gone, the boardwalk was warped and littered with twisted metal, and just south of ere this photo was taken, the sand dunes were completely washed away. But amid all the devastation, somehow, one of the crosses on the beach ramained standing. Happening to capture this scene with three seagulls perched atop the cross made this an incredibly surreal and almost spiritual experience for me. Hope this photo can give others the same sense of hope it gave me!”
 

Thank you Rachel….it has!
