Bert and Deb visit LBI
March 2008

view of the northern end of the island, lighthouse in the center, from the Dutchman's Brahaus on the causeway

Dutchman's hasn't changed much at all since the 70s

Very "welcoming" sign, isn't it?
God forbid anyone have any fun (or freedom)  in America.

Typical new oceanfront construction--MONSTROSITIES

This is the house Uncle Stephen's family rented for many years on the ocean at N. 3rd Street in Surf City.
It is one of the very few older, traditional homes left on the oceanfront.

Bert walks down the brand new dunes to the pristine beach

winter beach--new dunes left, no jetties anymore right

except for the fact it was freezing out, the ocean looked very tempting

This is the house now standing at 314 11th Street where our old house used to be.

and this is the house next door, on the corner of 11th and Barnegat Ave

and this is the house on the other side of our old one,
which looks the same as it did back then

"Old Barney," the Barnegat Lighthouse in Barnegat Light

don't sleep on the beach!

we love you, ocean
