The duplex by the Grace Christian school is making progress. The roof is now poured and set, and once the forms are all removed the interior work can begin.
Many homes on Tinian have 'secret' gardens, hidden behind beautiful hedges.
The work on the amphitheater continues. It looks wonderful as it gets fully painted
The sidewalks around the building have been completed
And construction continues on what I can only assume will be seating for the theater
There is also a stand, or tower, being built behind the bleachers--perhaps for lighting or direction?
Some who visited the island for the holidays decided to stay at the beach... I'm not sure if this can be considered real camping-- just too many amenities!
Even with all the construction going on around it, the local Catholic church tries to keep in the Christmas spirit: beautiful flowers for the Savior...
And even their own Christmas tree in the yard...
The road construction is moving from east to west along the upper main street. It is now at the Catholic church, soon to start moving downhill towards the dock area.
The construction company has built two staging areas for their work. This small one holds excess dirt and drainage pipe.
This large one is surrounded by a fence built using old 55 gal drums. All of the construction equipment, material, etc., is held within this area.
One of the homes soon to be engulfed by the road construction has a beautiful 'standing' garden.
At the base of the road under construction, near the dock, is a sign welcoming you to Tinian's main village.
As you look up the road towards the village you can see some of the road construction equipment on their way to work. The roadwork is just about to start coming down this hill towards the dock.
There has been some work done by the hospital emergency entrance also. There used to be a large open ditch to the left that ran between the two buildings. It had a couple of beautiful trees and grass. Someone decided to fill-in the ditch and create a parking surface here... the grass and trees now gone... oh well.
