The summer season may over, but the sun was out all weekend and locals were beached in Sea Bright as pumping and prepping to bring millions more cubic yards of sand to the shore continued on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers barges in the ocean.
The shoreline has expanded a lot since Hurricane Sandy ravaged Sea Bright nearly a year ago. It went from the beach being in the street to mammoth mountains — Mount Sandy — in the parking lot and then back onto the beach.
And while a pre-Sandy scheduled beach replenishment project filled in some sand gaps on the beach, it wasn't enough.
The current project, that spans from Sandy Hook to Cape May is touted as the largest Jersey Shore replenishment project in history.
