Last Moonrise at Frisco Pier?




Spurred by the news that the pier's demolition is scheduled to begin in December, I devoted this month's blog, and most of my limited photography time, to Frisco Pier. I went early in the month for moonrise, and went back earlier this week for one more sunset there.
Here is a teaser photo. More on the blog click "Blogs" up above in the blue, and then click on my nature blog.

Beautiful pic. I have so many childhood memories of fishing there. Sad to see the pier fall apart but I think I will be even sadder to see it gone.

I haven't kept up with the latest on timing of the take down. Sad to see it go, as well. Heading over to your blog, Eve.

According to Frisco Rod and Gun, or maybe it was Frisco Tackle) I read the work is slated to begin 12/5. It will seem very odd without it there.
I might have to see if I can find something about the pier's history, in its heyday. Never thought much about it, but now realize I don't even know when it was first built.
Beautiful photos Eve. The pier is always nice with a mooon backdrop.

Did some checking. The Frisco Pier was first opened in 1962. It was 20 ft wide and 500 ft long. Originally named the Hatteras Pier. Severely damaged by Hurricane Isabel in 2003. Then it was purchased by Tom & Angie Gaskell, who repaired it. The last year it was fully operational was 2008. Briefly reopened in 2010 until Hurricane Earl damaged it so badly it wasn't economically feasible to repair it.

Thank you Eve, for your very, very beautiful picture.

Awesome photo! At least my daughter and I got a chance to see it for the first time back in June. I will have to make sure I save my photos!
