Took a ride over to Mexico beach on New Years Eve just to explore. When we got to the pier it had a large sign that said it was closed for fireworks setup. There seemed to still be people going on so we did as well. When we got about half way down, a gentleman told us that the pier was now closed and we had to leave. I asked if we could just walk to the end and come right back and he said ok. We had the pier to ourselves. You can see in the second picture the mortars used to launch the fireworks that were placed at the end of the pier. Today was a little different for Carson, as you’ll see from the pictures. He went from camera friendly to no pictures please. I still tried.
