You'll have to forgive me if I sound confused. I am not thinking clearly. Just
looking at everything is more than the mind can take in. We walked up to the
boardwalk two days ago. There are two main road here, Park Avenue and Broadway.
Broadway looked like something from an armageddon movie. Mountains of sand, road
caved in and ponds of water, weird foamy crap blowing. Most of the board walk is
