    Looks like your view will be blocked off soon with that construction going on there?

    Not really. If you finish a building, put a roof on it, you have to pay property tax on it. If it remains unfinished, no roof fitted, no tax paid. Many local buildings thus look half done.

    Stupid, but thems' the rules. :(

    That's a nice shot there! In envy these close positions, night shots would be smashing from so close!

    I didn't know the Wally Ace was there also, not really my kind of yacht.

    I have two friends that are vacationing in ANU at the moment and one of them thought of me and sent me these two pics, "Icon" and "Horizons II"?

    Wadadli,

    Are you going to be around for Classic Week? There should be some beauties arriving by now.

    Hopefully; I can't give a definite answer at this point, but I'll let you know as the date draws nearer.

    I heard that newly constructed dock was funded by Leander and Sojana's team.
