LBI OPENED: Photo Gallery: Ship Bottom to South Beach Haven

Clean-up and restoration with a dose of humor all go hand in hand as Long Beach Island recovers from Sandy.


Long Beach Island residents - except those from Holgate - returned to their homes Saturday morning, beginning at 6 a.m.

During a Friday afternoon news conference in Seaside Heights on Friday, Governor Christie announced that the Route 72 causeway bridge will be open.

Christie said the state will allow residents controlled access to assess damage, retrieve belongings and permit repopulation of the island for residents whose homes are safe and habitable.

Here is a short photo tour before Saturday's reopening. 

People should procede with caution as there is still a lot of work going on and dangerous conditions in many areas.

I am looking at the pix and all I can say is it's hard to take a bad picture at the shore. But is the homeowner going to build a staircase to the beach now? what exactly happened there. looks to me like"The best laid plans o' mice and men aft gang a gley!"

Some tribes in Sudan and Senegal http://www.coachoutletonlinexc.net/ Coach Factory Outlet have an average height of 6-foot-6, which also happens to be the size of the average NBA player. People in Nigeria, http://www.louisvuittonoutletam.net/ Louis Vuitton Purses Mali and Congo tend to be very big and physical. We need to build a strategy to go into these regions http://www.coachoutletstoreze.com/ Coach Factory Outlet and cultivate the talent through infrastructure and instruction.Not long ago, soccer in Africa was almost http://www.guccibeltsoutletds.net/ Gucci Belts the same way. It was untapped.Kids in Africa start kicking a ball when they are six or seven years old, if not younger. http://www.coachfactoryonlinefn.net/ Coach Factory Outlet It's like baseball, basketball and football in America. If you're talented, people will find you. That's what http://www.coachfactoryonlineae.com/ Coach Factory Outlet happened with soccer. The number of academies has grown rapidly, and people are really into it. As a http://www.coachoutletb1.com/ Coach Factory Online result, nearly every major soccer team has a lot of African players.Through my experience as a Nigerian player, http://www.coachoutlethcs.com/ Coach Outlet Online coach and now NBA executive, I believe basketball can follow a similar path. It starts with building facilities. We need http://www.coachoutletonlinegc.com/ Coach Outlet Online to start investing in outdoor courts and indoor gyms for kids to play.

Chinese parents send their children http://www.coachoutletonlinebd.com/ Coach Outlet Online to private U.S. high schools as a strategic decision to strengthen their candidacy for elite U.S. universities, http://www.guccibeltsoutletstores.net/ Gucci Belt Lin said. A growing number also want their children to lead happier lives rather than have them consumed by http://www.coachoutletonlinewo.com/ Coach Factory Outlet preparing for the gaokao in China the one-time, high-stakes national university entrance examination that http://www.guccibeltsoutletstores.net/ Gucci Belts is the sole determinant of admission.The factors driving mainland Chinese to study in the United States come into http://www.coachfactoryoutletpo.com/ Coach Factory Outlet play much earlier, Lin said, noting an influx of foreign Chinese students into private U.S. secondary http://www.coachoutletonlinefc.org/ Coach Outlet Online schools, starting around 2005.The goal of education in mainland China is to prepare you to take the gaokao. http://www.coachoutletwr.com/ Coach Online Outlet Everything else is secondary. In China, you would put the gaokao in the center.whereas...in American education, http://www.coachoutletloa.com/ Coach Factory Online you put the student in the center, and everything else serves the best interests of the student. It's not http://www.coachoutletonlineyu.net/ Coach Outlet Online exclusively about college.
