Fairhope Pier, Fairhope, Alabama

- by Sharon Lyn Jones

This week's theme: Piers

pier
-noun
1.a structure built on posts extending from land out over water, used as a landing place for ships, an entertainment area, a strolling place, etc.; jetty.

There are large piers and small piers. They are found on the shores of oceans, rivers and lakes. They are used as landmarks when on the beach or water. Piers are a good spot to fish, feed the gulls or sun. When it's really sunny and hot, if you go underneath the big ones, you will find cool shade.


Art: Fairhope Pier, Fairhope, Alabama by Artist Sharon Lyn Jones
This pier is on the water front near the old VA Building. Its down from the large waterfront pier that everyone goes to. On the way to Mullet Point where my family once owned a summer home we would drive by this public pier. I like how the weather beaten pine trees framed it all. I am doing a opaque watercolor of this scene right now. This drawing is copyrighted by me and must have my approval to reprinted or use.
