The sunset is now moving just onto the beach line which is producing some of the most awesome sunsets of the year. You have to get out a little early since the time change to enjoy it, however, when there is a small cloud cover the colors can be breathtaking.
We are also seeing plenty of fish, sharks, sunfish, dolphins and marine birds around the pier for those wanting to watch the marine life. This time of year we typically get to see some large redfish swimming along the sand bar from time to time too.
Above the water we have a few
friendly pelicans and herons, as well as other really neat water fowl hanging
about the pier. Please be sure to not mess with the birds though, they are protected
on Pensacola Beach.
To walk the pier
is only $1.00 which makes it the best value on the beach! However, a great Christmas
gift is a year walking pass for 60.00 good for 1 year. At 1471ft the pier is the
best 2/3 mile walk you can make.
