This picture is for my friend Baydog.
A lot of people have seen the aerial shots and pictures taken from the New Jersey mainland looking east towards the point where the Mantoloking Bridge used to connect to the Barnegat Peninsula, showing the new inlet through the peninsula created by Hurricane Sandy. It seems as if the bridge and the road across the peninsula in some way focused the storm surge and the waves to destroy all the houses between the bay and the sea on both sides of the road.
Today Baydog wrote a post about his favorite boatyard, Beaton's, which he believes is now "scattered in the back marshes."
This picture (looking west) was taken from a helicopter behind the helicopter carrying President Obama and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, as they viewed storm damage from superstorm Sandy yesterday. I am pretty sure that Baydog's favorite boatyard, or what is left of it, can be seen in the top left hand corner of the photo.
What do you think Baydog?
