Elephant Rock Pier

Last night I was preparing to head out to Ft Point* pier this morning when I ran across another pier that I’d never heard of up in Tiburon: Elephant Rock Pier.  Was open 24/7 and I hated crowded piers & highways so I decided I’d go give it a go last night.

Ran out to Marina Foods for bait and learned a very important lesson.  Even though they’re open until 10pm, if you show up at 945, don’t expect the bins of fresh seafood to still be out.  Had to look around in the freezer section for bait.  Settled on trying something new last night, and grabbed some anchovies.  Not sure if this is something new Marina is trying out, or I just got lucky and they had them, but they don’t usually have frozen anchovies.  Best you can do is smelt usually.

Headed out to Tiburon after that and drove right past the pier.  When I read it was only 75ft long I thought it’d be larger.  I saw the restaurant that was right next to it, and figured it must’ve been somewhere further down the road.  About 10 minutes later I realized my mistake and turned around.  Found this when I found the pier and was trying to park
