I love this old pier, my favourite place in town. I visit in all my moods and it shows me the same. The beautiful calm of a balmy summer day, the ferociousness of a winter storm, day and night this place speaks to me. It’s gradually falling into the sea, each year another section has disappeared. Used now only by seagulls and starlings the old girl is fading. She’s resilient though, two fires and multiple storms and she’s still standing.
