Construction of the new boardwalk on the waterfront started about a month ago. I can't remember how long the finished walk is supposed to be, but I hope longer than the concrete foundations indicated last weekend. I love boardwalks.
Across the street development for waterfront apartments started about a decade ago, and the black building, a popular used-house-parts store (fire places, stained glass windows, French doors and brass parts, among others) was the biggest casualty. But the apartments proved too expensive, even before the world crisis, and many are rented out on short terms as holiday accommodations. Big gaps remain like scars left by greed and scheming minds. I just had to put that in; these apartments are one of the symbols of the changing faces of Nelson in the last decade or so. Definitely less charming.
