This shot was taken on the east side of the pier. The one yesterday of three fishing boats was taken on the west side. Here you can see the Riverside Trolley tracks in the foreground. The rusty line below the hills is the metal and pavement breakwater (or jetty?) for the basin. It's a wonderful structure for walkers, bikers, people who want to fish, etc. Until recently, you could drive onto it, but the entry to the pier is currently closed to vehicles. I'm not sure, but I think the pier or its railings may need repairs.
From the pier, docks stretch out on either side, and at the end of the pier, the long arms of the jetty stretch up- and down-river. You can get a tremendous view of the ships and boats, toss in a fishing line, or just enjoy feeling like you're out in the river. Of course, the jetty also projects the boats. Let's not forget that!
