There's something serene and peaceful about a place where you can see that what used to be there at one time is now gone. Maybe it's a touch of nostalgia, or maybe the place looks better with the "thing," whatever it was, fading away. Maybe both. Much of the pier has fallen away since I arrived here in 2001. I remember an old house trailer sitting to the left of the main dock on what is now just a flimsy, crumbling remnant of a platform. The scene definitely looks better without the trailer! I wonder if it fell in, or if they took it away. There seems to be an intense sensation of open space on this part of the River Walk.
