It's been rebuilt over the years but as piers go it's pretty good. The fishing is just so so but it's a nice walk with a great view of the ocean and the town.

Had some extra time and the sun finally came out. Nice walk on the pier. It was cold all week and no one was out. It was great to get some fresh air.
