The piers go straight out into the ocean and stop. Today I was wondering why we built them. There are three …Ocean Beach pier, Crystal Pier and Scripps Pier. I have been on two of them many times. Scripps pier is used mainly for Oceanographic activities.
Nothing like going for a walk on the pier…bring your jacket it’s always cold out there.. go to the end and of course look out and over into the ocean…watch people fishing, surfing and holding hands strollng on a warm summer evening, watch the sunset and the waves splashing underneath the pier.
Walk underneath the piers and look at all the piles that hold it up.
