Lunch at Beacon Cove. Nice lunch, warm sun, cool breeze, not too busy, lovely. Afterewards we walked west along the newly opened beach walkway and took some photos. Here is Princes Pier. It is fenced off to the public as it is unsafe but one fisherman managed to get out onto it.
I have heard that there are plans to build apartments on the Pier, similar to Sydney's Finger Wharf, although the local residents have fought against it as some will have their views spoilt. Click the pic for the full size and note the that the structure on the pier is almost identical to the one on Station Pier.
