PE : Shark Rock Pier

Our last stop in Port Elizabeth on Saturday 28 April was the Shark Rock Pier.  I wanted to go for a walk on the pier since we arrived 2 days earlier but we waited for better weather.  It was our last day in PE and we decided to go for a walk even if there was an awful wind blowing (at least it wasn’t raining)

Shark Rock Pier was built in 1990 to help save the beaches from erosion and it was successful.  It is also a wonderful tourist attraction.  The pier is 137m long and there are senic view of the city and the beachfront. 
In the photo below you can see the old slipway at Humewood Beach.  Before the harbour was built boats sailed in between the pillars and were then pulled onto the slipway for boat repairs.
