Tauranga in the late 80's. Waterfront on the Strand.
May not be allowed today but was very well supported and a lot of fun.
I wandered down to see what all the action has been on our north facing side of waterfront at Fergusson Park. Lots of truck and digger action all week. We have a new beach thanks to the massive amount of new sand they dumped and spread! Wow..
The edge of the park had significant erosion and you had to climb up a 1 to 2ft (old school) bank from the old beach to get to park level and many of the Norfolk pine roots had been exposed. Now all sorted. A great job.
|Nice sky as well. Rain on the way.
We spent a lot of time together in the last few days.
Breakfast at The Med
Great to be out after all the rain. We went to the Mount and had fun just mucking around and going to McD's and all that stuff.
I asked them if they wanted a photo, which they did, and I said ok one rule, no thumbs up. I got this!😂
The tracks were closed today on Mt Maunganui (Mauao) so that the council could remove a large number of old pine trees by helicopter. It was wet and dark during the operation which was going seamlessly while I was looking on. The logs and branches were all being dropped off in the car park area and being trimmed up. Someone's going to get a hell of a lot of very rugged pine logs. A well organised and planned operation. Tracks reopen 5pm Thursday 7th.
It rained fairly heavily but work continued
