The Beach … JBR …

Over the weekend Perry and I went for a walk down to JBR near our home … its actually been so long since we’ve last been down here I can’t actually remember when it was … probably around 2-3months ago when we last had visitors … anyway for the last year and a bit the whole beach front has been covered in hoarding with a lot of construction work going on …

They were working on a new development called The Beach … meant to be a bunch of shops/restaurants right on the beach … even more so than previously … at first it looked like it was going to be shopping mall … but as it turns out it looks pretty good … the hoarding has come down for the most part … and the majority of the shops/restaurants are in the process of being fitted out …
