About the photo:
The Pier was originally built in 1966 for $133,877. It was destroyed in July of 1981 by the “No Name Storm”. Rebuilding took place in 1984 with Greenhart lumber from South America, the only place in the world to purchase this wood. It did not have to be treated, nor did it shrink, because it was grown in the swamps. In February 2004, the Pier was totally removed. The construction of the current Pier cost $1.75 million dollars, and the money was raised by a municipal bond (recreational). The decking of the Pier is now made of plastic wood fiber composite, is built to withstand a category 4 hurricane, and has a projected life span of at least 50 years.The Pier is 720 ft long (219.45 meters), 22 ft wide, and the height is 20’ feet (6.096 meters). Water depth at the end averages 16 ½ feet (5.03 meters). The Pier is open 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, with free admission, and no fishing license is required. Papa’s Bait Shop is located midway down the Pier and is open 7 days a week at 6:30 AM. Source: Venice Fishing Pier
Have a fabulous, fun, and safe July Fourth!

Demonstrate gratitude for the simple things in life. Show your child that you are a person who is truly grateful for the simple, good things in life: a sunset, rain, insects, birds, children laughing, or a kind gesture…. Appreciative people are happy; they see the beauty in life while others miss it.
~Richard Carlson, Celebrate Your Child: The Art of Happy Parenting, 1992

ALL VETERANS OF ALL WARS,
THE DISABLED AND THOSE WHO
GAVE THEIR LIVES IN THE HOPE
THEIR CHILDREN WOULD NEVER
NEED TO FIGHT OR GIVE THEIR
LIVES TO KEEP OUR COUNTRY
STRONG AND FREE, BUT ESPECIALLY
DEDICATED WITH THE KNOWLEDGE
THAT IF CALLED, THEY WILL EMULATE
THEIR PARENTS IN UPHOLDING
THE HONOR OF THESE

We found this touching salute to our armed forces on the Gulf Coast beach in Waveland, Mississippi. Today is the perfect day to share the photos and say “Thank you” to our service members – past and present.
