    19 Haunting Photographs Capture the Devastation After the Dunkirk Evacuation in 1940
    August 11, 2017

    The pictures were taken not long after the Allied troops were rescued from the beaches of France and Belgium by an armada of boats in 1940. Haunting photographs taken behind enemy lines that capture the trail of devastation left in the wake of the Dunkirk evacuation have been unearthed after 77 years.

    The poignant pictures were taken not long after 330,000 Allied troops had been rescued from the beaches of France and Belgium by an armada of boats between May and June 1940.

    The epic operation is about to be the subject of the new Hollywood blockbuster movie 'Dunkirk' which stars Tom Hardy and Harry Styles and is due for release on July 21.

    North Hutchinson. Wifey volunteered last week on a Habitat for Humanity demo and wanted to show me the area. Even though I have lived in the region for 15 years I never really explored the north side. I always preferred the south side around Stuart.

    First, I don't know how HfH got a gig up there because it was right off A1A and the cheapest house was $500k on a dry lot.

    There is also one lot for sale literally across a service road from the beach and a couple on the beach. There is only private access for the community and the access road is rarely traveled. The homes are older with a couple of new ones going up, but they are 30 seconds walking to the beach. The 2 beachfront lots are $525k & $575k while the dry lot across from them is $159k and has been on the market for 3 years.

    Right now even Ft. Pierce is getting busy and I doubt it will be available by the end of the year. Any good developer would buy up the beach property and put up single family and a few townhouses. Anything equivalent in Palm Beach County would be more than double.

    While getting my daily walking steps in this weekend, I decided to go on the bluff trail. The fog and the Monterey Cypress make for very cool views of the Pacific.
