Postcard from Greenwich Point on Thanksgiving

Because Thanksgiving is one giant Early Bird Special, I dedicate this post and slide show to Greenwich snowbirds wherever they are – teeing off in Boca or lounging by the pool in Delray.

These photos, taken this morning at Greenwich Point of the aftermath of Sandy, show a stark beauty left by the storm. The Point has been open about one week since it was shut down after the storm. Even in a normal high tide – which was this morning at 6:30 – it’s apparent how vulnerable the Point is. It doesn’t take much for the causeway to be submerged. Sandy’s surge deconstructed a lot of the man-made walking paths and coastline fauna.

I hope they don’t over manicure when they re-build the park. Nature has a way of calling the shots with its occasional catharsis.
