Ocean Parkway was damaged during Superstorm Sandy. To the point where most of south side has been closed. It’s been a slow go in the recovery process – homeowners waiting for insurance checks that just don’t seem to becoming and many of the beaches are simply “closed.”
But for the past few months they have been working 24 hours a day six days a week to repair and reopen Ocean Parkway and Robert Moses State Park. Large earth moving trucks are transporting sand from Cedar Beach all along the damaged areas of the beach. The new dune is now an impressive 18′ wide wall of sand. Top soil, beach grass, and shrubs are being planted to help sure up the dunes.
It’s great to see this progress.
I might be spending too much time refreshing these two sites…
Marine Layer Productions “original” series, “This Is Me | America.”
What Youth original series, “This Is Us | Australia.”
My brother keeps sending me fun pics from Key West. On Thursday I got a photo of wrestling legend (?) “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan enjoying himself at a bar called Sloppy Joe’s. He was apparently a big hit with the ladies, probably screaming “Ooooohhhh” or something, I’d imagine.
This is not Hacksaw’s car, but you will see it rolling through the streets of KW, FL.
My sister filmed this small day on Long Island in February 2012. I think it was for a school project. That’s my brother Chris suiting up and getting ready for a surf at Gilgo Beach. The Red Bull pounding must be for theatrics, as I’ve never seen him consume an energy drink before. Long Island can get big and good during the winter, but 95% of the time it looks like this. The video is entertaining enough, and the soundtrack will be stuck in your head all day!
***”iSkysoft” is a program that lets you rip files from a disc and my sister used it so that’s why you see it on the top left of this entire video. Lo siento***
This photo was taken from the middle seat of a northbound plane somewhere over San Diego and the Pacific Ocean.

They have dogs for transportation. Duh!
I watched this guy do a couple laps with his dog in the Panhandle today. It was funny to watch considering how busy the park was with joggers and bicyclists jockeying for room on the path, but then I also felt bad because I’m guessing the dog was undernourished and probably shouldn’t have been pulling anyone.
