Pier Diary, May 6: First-time visitor takes in Pier

ST. PETERSBURG — Sommer Perry lives in Tampa but grew her roots in the Sunshine City.

On Monday, Perry, 26, brought her friend Jessica Grippo, 27, to see the Pier.

Grippo of Atlanta, has never visited the city and spent the day shopping and eating on Beach Drive.

Perry wanted Grippo to see the inverted pyramid before it becomes rubble later this year.

"I wanted her to get the St. Petersburg experience," Perry said. "It's a staple of St. Petersburg. It's sad to see it go."
