Jennette's Pier Nags Head, OBX 5/28/2011 Part 3

After our sand dune climb, we headed for Jennette's Pier in Nags Head.

The most people we have seen on a Outer Banks Beach since we got here. But it is Memorial Day weekend.

This pier is the first fishing pier to open on the Outer Banks.

It was constructed in 1939.

In 1960 Hurricane Donna unearthed an old ship and destroyed the pier.

After Hurricane Donna, the pier was repaired, but in 1962 the Ash Wednesday storm destroyed the pier once again.

Then again the pier was destroyed  in 2003 by Hurricane Isabel by taking out 540 feet of the pier. In 2008 the pier was demolished and was rebuilt and finished in 2011.

We watched the surfers from the side of the pier.

This guy on the skimboard is pretty good also.

Most of the homes along the OBX coastline are on stilts and are rentals.

Here is a map of the OBX and show where the Jennette's pier is located. Our campground, Oregon Inlet is just south of the pier.

Here are the rates to get on or fish on the pier. We didn't go on the pier, because we had one more stop, and we have been on many piers.

I took a picture of the pier from a window inside the store.
