Ellen Browning Scripps Memorial Pier,La Jolla, CA
Crashing waves make its wave through The Scripps Pier just after sunset creating the drama I was hoping for .The Ellen Browning Scripps Memorial Pier is an ocean pier built in 1987-1988 and is one of the world's biggest research piers. It is used for boat launching and a variety of experiments. Data on ocean conditions and plankton taken from the pier since 1916 provide an unparalleled source of information on changes in the coastal Pacific Ocean.
