Johnny Mercer Pier, Wrightsville Beach, NC
I loved this picture so much. The pier is empty in winter at sunrise. No fishers!
It used to be a wooden pier. It is the first pier I ever walked down and I clutched my mom's hand so tight because I looked down and could see the water between the wooden slats. My mother told me not to look down and of course, I didn't listen.
The wooden pier was destroyed by Hurricane Fran in 1996. The new pier, as shown here, is constructed of concrete and cement.
