Last Friday I had the privilege of touring the southern end of the county with a former classmate of mine who had information and old photographs for the book I'm working on. One of the many places we visited was the site of the former Bayside Wharf.
The wharf, which he said stretched waaaaaaay out from where we were standing, was obliterated by Hurricane Hazel.
Today, the site is marked with a pavilion which is available for rent from the Mathews Land Conservancy. These pictures were taken from that pavilion.
Click here for information on the wharf and the MLC.
Here's a picture of Johnny Pugh, my high school friend who was ever so happy to tell me what he knew. And what he knows are facts and details which cannot be read in books or studied in school.
What he knows may be my next book.
Thank you, Johnny.
