The vicious hurricane Sandy hit the Jersey shore with full force on October 29, 2012. This photograph was taken on November 3, and this gentleman was one of the first fisherman to return to the Ocean Grove, NJ beach. He had fished these shores since he was a child, and he was determined to return as soon as possible. The boardwalk had been destroyed as did the fishing pier. Much of the sand had been swept away.
