    Any questions, we're here now? April 2017

    A new airport hotel is being built, it looks about 7 stories, all the I beams are up.

    The pavers (sidewalks) they used in San Nicolas are done and they are working they're way down to Savaneta. It looks real nice.

    The bridge at Pos Chiquito/Spanish Lagoon is almost done.

    There is a tower crane just east of the hospitaal, I need to snoop on over and see what it is.

    would the crane near the hospital be part of the hospital construction or the condo complex just north of the hospital?

    The crane is south of the condos and close to route1. We drove through there this morning, just a tower crane and two construction trailers. No workers and no signs.

    Speaking of stuff over near the hospital, is the "ride of death" as the bride and I call it still there. It's the craziest damn thing.....it used to be a colossal water slide that has since closed. On one of the slides it just stops on a near vertical path about 70 feet in the air !Any questions, we're here now? April 2017-1876.jpg

    that water park should never have been built.
    unsafe, overpriced, ....what a waste of money for the developers.
    i am glad that the eyesore is now gone.
