that blows me away that it can withstand acts of God and may be torn down by man.....lost to future generations of fisherman and surfers who surf near it because it makes waves. sand piles up around the pilings and raises the profile of the sand under the water. the water comes in out of the deep water and slams into that, causing a nice peeling wave on the surface.
hundreds of thousands have enjoyed this pier over the years. maybe we'll be able to keep keep using it for many more decades to come.
