More Devonport Rd Works

 CBD Tauranga is on the move. Currently every third or fourth building is up for lease (empty) and more are being torn down. Gut feel is that once the rebuild is is complete business owners will be scrambling to get back into the down town area. Parking needs to be addressed in the process.

Meanwhile there seems to be a new coffee shop popping up down town, weekly....

Grace

 It's been a while since I could record some photos of G.

These were send to me on the weekend as Grace was preparing to head off to receive a well deserved award at a public function.

And Dad
10 years earlier. Stunning and nothings changed.
