  3. Really!! I can't even imagine!

  4. Does anyone remember the pier in Spring Lake, NJ? When I was a child back in the 50's there was a pier. Then for what I recall was two years in a row there was a storm. One year the pier got shorter, the next year shorter. Now there isn't a pier and I can't seem to find a picture of it. It was located at what is called Pier Beach in Spring Lake Heights
