Bob Bowné  October 31, 2012.  ©. Ocean front at Ocean Grove, New Jersey.  Special to Blogfinger.net

Ocean Grove  was hit hard during Sandy losing most of our boardwalk and fishing pier. Bob Bowné  photographed when Sandy carried away the Fishing Club and he took the most iconic image of that day. (link below)

These oceanfront Victorians took a beating but they survived as they probably did during many storms since the late 19th century. Ocean Grove was relatively lucky.  It would be two years before the Boardwalk was partially rebuilt, and it is still not done.  But you can’t hurry love:

Purple Galinule. By Bob Bowné

“Hey…thought your readers would find this to be fun….

“This Purple Gallinule has been hanging out in the yard here, down at the beach for the last four days.
He is native of Florida area according to The Audubon Society…so he must be here on a Victorian vacation.
Check out those yellow chicken legs!”
—Bob
Y. RADIER   It’s a tango  “La Paloma.”

Says Bob Bowné, “This morning this GIANT work ship was “parked” just off the coast of Bradley Beach in the morning mist. It has a 6 or 7 smaller attending vessels that are scooting around and coming in by the beachfront. Looks like Bradley has plenty of sand, so I do not know if it may here for beach replenishment or some other duty.”    Anybody know?

Could it be the Russians with a new load of emails for the media?

Or maybe it’s our order for diagonal lines for Main Avenue.

Hi Paul..

One of the dredgers is back in our area…I shot this this morning off of Allenhurst… Not sure if this is a continuation of the original sand replenishment or perhaps some additional maintenance due to storms.

“Cross on the Auditorium floating in the late evening mist.” By Bob Bowné. Special to Blogfinger. Nov. 30, 2016. ©

“I dreamt we were standing
By the banks of the Thames
Where the cold grey waters ripple
In the misty morning light
Held a match to your cigarette
Watched the smoke curl in the mist
Your eyes, blue as the ocean between us
Smiling at me…”

THE  POGUES.  “Misty Morning, Albert Bridge.”   The Pogues were a Celtic punk band from London, popular in the 1980’s.
