Night at the Pier

I took advantage of an early evening downtown and wandered out on the St. Pete Pier. The completely redesigned structure opened in July 2020 with large public play spaces, multiple restaurants, a gift shop, an arts and crafts market space, and even an education center.

One of the visual highlights, is Bending Arc, an undulating net sculpture by local artist Janet Echelman. It is a bit unremarkable during the day, just a massive gray mesh that resembles a cast net. At night though, it is mesmerizing as colorful lights dance over the 180 miles of twine.

I do enjoy living here!
