Our Retro Pic of the Day is a sort of retro prequel (oxymoronic as that is) to the Tiki Haven fundraiser in Fair Haven on Saturday.

This shot is of what was left of the Tiki Bar at the iconic Donovan’s Reef in Sea Bright in the winter of 2012 right after Hurricane Sandy flattened the bar. It was the summer spot where all Rumson-Fair Haven area people flocked for some Tiki fun, sun, food and drink.

Donovan’s was expected to reopen last summer, but that did not happen.

This summer? That’s what the word is.
