Jim Bell, the famous swimmer is now on the island and ready to start swimming around the island. He will be staying at the Sai-Plaza apartment while he is on island. He will be swimming to Tinian from Saipan on Saturday, then began swimming around the island.
I also discovered a mistake I had made in a previous blog--I had noted the closure of the clothing store Roshi's that was by the baseball field. I did not know it hadn't closed, it had just moved! It had moved to this same plaza. That is good to know!
While everyone else is working hard...there are some making better use of their time!
The local amphitheater being built is finally getting the concrete roof poured. It is a scary time to do this as it is the rainy season. Having been in construction all of my life--as a roofer--I understand the problems these workers have. If it happens to rain (especially the downpours we get here) during the time they are actually pouring concrete, it will be a disaster! But when I visited the site, they were about 1/2 done, and although the weather was threatening, it looked as though they might make it before it rains again.
