The Jacksonville Beach Pier Reopened Today
After a year and a half of repairs, 625 feet of the Jacksonville Beach Pier is back open. The remainder is still under redesign and is. Hurricane Matthew destroyed 350ft. in 2016. New railings have been replaced along with the walkways.
The beach pier had closed indefinitely due to damage sustained during Hurricane Matthew in October 2016 and additional damage from Hurricane Irma in September 2017.
Time estimates for rebuilding the pier have consistently been between 18 months and two years from hurricane to completion. That placed the estimated completion date between May 2018 and October 2018.
The Jacksonville Beach Pier was designed to withstand 130 MPH winds or a Category 3 hurricane. Part of the initial delay in rebuilding the pier was determining what went wrong. The City of Jacksonville will not release the full study, but it appears it was an error in the construction.
It is only $3 for fisherman because not all of the pier is back open and only $1 to access. There is not a saltwater license required to fish on the pier.... [Read More]

Josh Thompson at Mavericks Recap
Jacksonville Fl - On Friday the 13th at Mavericks, many people attended Josh Thompson’s concert. This artist is known for his hit songs “Beer On the Table”, “Way Out Here”, and “Coming Around”. This artist has some very catchy songs, but some are also repetitive. Before this artist went on to perform, Stephen Carey opened up for Josh. This was the first time I had heard of him or his music. His music is a country rock sound. When he came out to perform, his opening had a little bit of “Friday the 13th” intro since it was Friday the 13th. Listening to him perform was really cool, I thought this guy was a good choice to open up the concert at Mavericks.
Once Stephen Carey finished up, the crowd was excited and waiting for the concert to start. The crowd was excited to see Josh Thompson perform. I thought his performance was good and brought in the crowds who like to drink and party. Josh also performed a new song called “Cold Beer With Your Name On It”, for an upcoming album that he is working on. I think this guy writes a lot of songs that fit many Honky Tonks and Dive bars. Josh Thompson hasn’t gotten much radio airplay in a while; his last album came out in 2010. But hopef... [Read More]
