SKYWATCH FRIDAY-ANGLIN'S PIER

This is Anglin's Pier. It has been a fixture for years. There is nothing quite like taking a stroll to the end as a Full Moon is rising from the Atlantic on a warm summer's evening. Many people fish from this pier as well. People have caught every fish imaginable from it. Some of the pier had to be rebuilt after our plethora of hurricanes a few years ago. Young couples can be seen walking hand in hand on a Saturday evening, some may be seen on SKYWATCH FRIDAY.

  2. Though a freshwater angler, I can't see a pier and not imagine some great adventure--like hooking the famous barracuda (there was a movie about this many years ago).

  5. I always think of piers of being so British, then I see this and I couldn't think of a better setting for a romantic pier stroll.

  8. I have spent many hours on the piers in Dania, Ft. Lauderdale, Deerfield Beach, etc. They are an immense attraction for the area!

  14. It's a long pier. I guess the water must be fairly shallow for a long distance. Beautiful shot!

  20. Like the angle view to see the full length of the pier, will not be much longer before you get to enjoy warm summer evenings there.

    Thanks for sharing with us all in sky watch friday and thanks for your kind comments on my blog earlier.

  24. What a cool pier! Isn't amazing how every time you visit a place like that it looks different depending on the light and time of day and season?

  25. That's a great looking pier! My grandmother used to tell me stories about when she was a girl in the 1920's and used to go to dances on the pier where she grew up.

  33. You will be rivalling Jacob with his many piers. I hazard that the walk in the moonlight would only be nice with that special person beside you.

  34. Fishing piers are wonderful places. It's nice to find folks on them just happy to be there and not much worried about catching things.

  35. Great pier. There is one in Juno that looks just like it. It also had to be rebuilt after a storm.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love those pier photos, maybe because I have never seen one in real! Lovely place, and the angle is great!

    Thanks for stopping by!

  37. I love piers. I think I would spend a lot of time on one if I had one near my neighborhood. Your shot is lovely...great lighting...Thanks for your visit to my SWF...

  38. The pier seems to stretch right to the horizon. Interesting that it was rebuilt and is well used. Here in the UK our seaside piers are in a very sorry state.

  42. There is something so romantic about walking out a long way over the sea, no wonder the pier is popular with couples, especially by moonlight.
    Really nice shot.

  46. Looks almost exactly like one we have here in Charleston. Lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Looks like a great place to do some fishing !!!!

    I think I can see a hopeful bird, perched on top of that second shelter from the end, waiting for a handout :-)

    Great shot !!

  48. I like this photo a lot. it makes me want to walk to the end to see what I can see. I am glad you enjoyed the night photo series. I plan to practice some more next full moon.

  49. I'd like to walk until I reach the end of it and stand there feeling the force of the sea before me - if I'm there. thanks for sharing.
