The Folks at Carpenter's Beach

Rob and Nancy (Carpenter) Thoresen, mother and son, in front of their front-row summer cottage. Once upon a time, it was hundreds of feet to the waterline...

I have now spent much of a week chronicling Superstorm Sandy's impact on the south coast of Rhode Island. My reporting and photographing culminated in today's story in The Providence Sunday Journal about the community at Roy Carpenter's Beach in South Kingstown, which has been in family hands for more than a century. The photographs by The Journal's Bob Thayer, including the one above, were spectacular. And the story paired very nicely on the front page with Rich Salit's excellent story about coastal erosion.
