Maybe 'delicate' isn't the right word but that's an usual pier!
And a lovely shot!

Delicate may well be the right word. The pier partially collapsed during stress testing in 1970, when they placed large plastic tanks on the deck and filled them with water. It was left derelict for years, then rebuilt and finally reopened almost 20 years later.

For next few days the sunset will be inline with the pier.
THe pier/lighthouse here is one of four in the state (of over a hundred pier/lighthouses) that stil has the catwalk.

I am currently going through my photos from 2019 for a photo book and came across this one. I may have posted one like this already somewhere. This jetty is at Ambleside in the Lake District.

Lake a bit choppy that morning.

I dont mind some splashing. Did get a little wet. (required sitting in coffee shop to dry out before going for much of a ride.)
If was waves washing over the pier, of any depth, that would have me stopping and not going out.

Previous morning the pier was perfectly dry, and water quite calm on both lakeside and channel side.

Opps, need to make myself mind the level indicators more.
<< later note: fixed it some with flickr edit. -1 degrees not quite enough, but -2 was too much, so left it at -1 >>

wasnt going to go onto this lower part.
I stayed up on the higher part, and even still, took home a couple quarts of lake water.
