3/21 Fernandina Beach Pier

This is a really long pier--2,400 feet long.  It is narrow and was built right next to the breakwall that protects the south side of Cumberland Sound.  The breakwall goes out easily another 2,400 feet, but is not very high. 

Lots of birds sitting on the portions of the breakwall all along the length of the pier and on the beach alongside it.  These are cormorants and pelicans.
And here is what it looks like facing the beach.  The beach campground is just north of this pier, but hard to see.

I will have to come back another day and explore the beach and flocks of birds that hang around.  I talked to a handful of people fishing and apparently all they were catching were small sharks which they had to throw back in.
