My favorite place is the Ken Combs Pier located at the end of Courthouse Road in Gulfport A structure built for and used by fisherman from all over the area The pier jets out about four hundred feet into the saline water Every hundred feet there are cabanas built to the left and right Aqua colored tin roofs cover these additions and shade the wooden benches built onto the pier It ends in a T formation and has additional benches for sitting and tables to clean your fish on But to me the pier is more then a place to ensnare a fish Sometimes I find companionship People of different races diverse backgrounds and various ages mingle together on a pier the barriers that normally separate us are torn away It also provides a place for solitude allowing me to converse with nature write a story or read a book Some look at the pier as just a structure used by fisherman but actually it offers more than the eye can see As I step onto it my senses come alive I can feel the sultry sun touching me warming my air-conditioned skin till the ocean breeze diminishes the sweltering heat Then the pungent odor of dead fish tingles my nostrils the smell lessened by the salty air Penetrating my ears are the sounds of birds calling to each other overhead and the waters softly lapping the pilings below The mixture of nature and human contact nurtures my soul providing a tranquility that I can find nowhere else This is why a public fishing pier is my favorite place to be
