Pier Diary, May 3: Long walk on a short-lived pier

Turns out many people are taking farewell walks. Denise Sisko, 31, and Charles Archer, 37, come around the bend from the bait shop.

"We're just kind of saying goodbye," Sisko says, adding that the atmosphere has changed. "There's no life here for the past year or so."

Archer is savoring memories.

"When I was a kid, I used to have a little boat. My brothers and I, we would come here and tie up the boat, get food and spend the day. We'd fish," he said. "It was kind of a destination."
