This is a fishing pier first and foremost at the Sanibel Island Lighthouse Park (Fla).

This is a fishing pier first and foremost at the Sanibel Island Lighthouse Park (Fla).   It has a very utilitarian design, but it also has expansive views at the end for gawkers and a shady area with benches by the beach. All photos by Paul Goldfinger © Jan. 2015.

In the event that the 500 foot OG fishing pier, severely damaged during Sandy, gets rebuilt someday, but without the fishing club building at the end, what would you like it to look like?    You can just comment below  and describe your vision, or send a photo. We have already heard from some gazebo fans.

Note that the historic OG fishing pier, when first built in 1891, wasn’t  a fishing pier at all.  Rev. Stokes  (1891) used it at first for a very practical purpose—see the link below.  The historic fishing club was established a few years later.
