This weekend is the Tinian Fiesta
I discovered a crew surveying the island. They have been staying at the LoryLynne where we live, but this is the first time I have seen them in the bush!
The paper has said that Tinian will be having a lottery to give out land to the locals. It is my understanding that all Chamorro can receive a plot of land to build a home on; they are simply required to do a certain amount of work on the land in order to keep it. Every few years the island holds a lottery to give out land to qualified locals... Good Luck!
Here is the rest of the crew...taking a break while they watch the other two site their next location.
This is the local park where the Tinian Fiesta will be held. They have been working on building booths for food and artists.
The little man at the Japanese shrine has a new hat and bib!
Most of the flame trees are now coming out in blooms
Here is one of Tinian's new flowers-- our daughter Liz....
I was trying out my new camera lens that will be used for underwater photos. The red is supposed to counteract the blue in the water, to give better colors underwater.
They are carving out a large parking area at the new amphitheater
This is the large drainage field at the bottom of north main, where all the water running down the street will end up after a rain.
The curbing crew finally reached the end of the road, by the dock
And roadwork continues from one end to the other
This crew was pouring concrete for the sidewalks, by the Elementary School
This is one of the few 'cross-overs' that will exist between north and south main street.
