There is a restaurant named Jim’s Dock, but locals call the state pier right next to It,  Jim’s Dock.  The location is this giant dock shaped like a peninsula, meaning you can access water on three sides.  It is intended by the state to be enjoyed by fishermen, but it is definitely enjoyed by way more than fishermen (especially because its free :))

Kids, parents, large groups of friends -EVERYONE has to jump off the dock at least once each summer.  It’s the rite of summer!  I think what amazes me most is somehow there are twenty people at any given time jumping off the dock and simultaneously fisherman fishing on the same darn pier!  Somehow, no one gets hurt and it’s been like this forever.

My favorite scene to watch is the kids swimming under the dock.  The tide can be so strong that kids can jump in on one side and be carried under the dock 30 feet to the other side.  It’s like an amusement park.  There are also a ton of crabs under the dock which means there’s an extra twenty kids down below trying to catch them!

Who knew a bunch of planks tied to a bunch of poles could be everlasting entertainment to so many?

I know my family has created so many memories here.  I hope it’s a favorite for many generations to come.
