It Takes a Village

Since the morning after Hurricane Sandy struck volunteers have been at all the area parks and waterfront sites throughout my area - and all along the Jersey Shore. Many are residents, many more come from all over - just to help.

It was really really cold this particular day but through the eyes of the fences I thought I'd share a bit of the area with you. Hopefully I'll get some photos of the workers when the weather is warmer.










All of the fencing was donated and put up by volunteers

So are the fences there to keep people back from what is being cleaned up? I don't understand why they put up fences. This is probably a duh moment for me. :)

I love the resiliency of nature and of mankind. Restoring and rebuilding. The second picture is my favorite - but thank you for all of them Happy week-end, my dear.

Nice of people to donate the fencing and volunteer to help. These pics remind me of Vancouver, a city by the sea that I lived in for 5 years.
