Topsail Pier

“I took this picture of a pier off the coast of North Carolina in 2004,” Kristyn says. “While my husband and I were dating, we spent a number of inexpensive vacations at a quaint seaside motel on Topsail Island. The photograph is special because a storm has since torn the pier down, and economic development replaced our old motel with a street of glamorous beach houses. But the place is still all about memories for us. Living landlocked as we do in Pittsburgh, we still try to make it to Topsail Island in the summer and probably always will.”
