I love this time a year walking on the pier even though it’s kind of cold you can see the snow in the mountains in Catalina island. I took my dog with me even though I know they’re not allowed but I carried him so no one said anything.

Have a nice day!

I have been doing some research about the pier in Seal Beach.  The First Pier was built-in 1906 and was 6 feet wide and 1865 feet in length and was the longest pier south of San Francisco.

In 1915 no one was allowed at the end of the pier because there was a high voltage light show at the end of the pier.

In 1935 a storm broke the pier in half and they had to use Bosun’s chair by the Coast Guard to get the people off the end.  Because of the great depression the pier wasn’t repaired until 1939.

In 1983 120 ft of the Pier was destroyed by a storm and the residents of Seal Beach raised $130,000 to repair the pier.  The is when Slick the Seal took up residence after the pier was repaired.

In 1992 a short in the electrical wiring under the pier resulted in severe fire damage.  Because of potential fire danger the city council prohibited smoking on the pier.

I found this old picture of what the pier looked like in the 1920’s.  It is a lot different now.  One of my favorite things to do in Seal Beach is to take a walk on the pier and watch the sunset. old pictures of Seal Beach4 big

Wow! The wind was really blowing in Seal Beach today. Almost blew me off the pier.  It’s been quite windy lately in Old Town.  I’m sure the wind borders love it.

Have a nice day!

Come and enjoy the day at the Seal Beach car show. I love to walk up main street and look at all of the vintage cars. I am even sponsoring a trophy this year for best modified 55-57. There will be music, food and fun all day and I think it is one of the best times in town. I’m sure I will see you there.

Great cars

The Seal Beach Lions is having their annual fish fry at the pier this weekend.  It is a lot of fun.  They  have a 50/50 drawing and give away a bunch of prizes the grand prize is a car.  There will also be really great music.  It is going to be hot this weekend, but it is always so nice at Seal Beach when it is hot inland.  See you there.

I took this picture on the Pier when there was still snow in the mountains with my iphone.  I think it is a great picture and just wanted to share it with everyone.Image
