In today's post, I'm gonna tell you a little history about this 868 metres long Urangan Pier in Hervey Bay. It was built in 1917 to export Bundaberg sugar, Burrum coal and Fraser Island timber until 1960s, the exports stopped and petroleum imports began. In 1980s, the Head of Pier (256 metres) was dismantled and the whole Pier was threatened with demolition then leased to Hervey Bay City Council for protection. After lunch at the Bayswater Restaurant, we came here for a relaxing walk under the sun. The 1.736 km (868 metres x 2) walk got colder and really windy as we move towards the center of the sea.

Welcome to the Urangan Pier.
Check out that old man fishing behind me... I'm about to "steal" something away from him :p
Dogs do love swimming a lot huh?
The beach side.
Yay, I've finally caught a fish! Okay, I lied... it belongs to that friendly old man =x
This is funny, LoL~
Such a weird pose >.<"
Ouch, my eyes hurt a lot!
"1936 - 1993 in loving memory of Elsie May Harris who loved fishing on this pier."
Most of them cut up the fishes they caught right on the spot.
The sky getting darker and the temperature getting lower.
How I wish I could go back to our resort and hide in the blanket that time, but I just couldn't afford to miss the beautiful sunset.
The "egg york" disappearing slowly in the orangey sky.
Pavilion Restaurant, looks like an expensive one.
And eventually, back to our resort!
