When I visited this afternoon it looked as theough they were taking the Excavator apart piece by piece.  I did not realise that it was over by the breakwater - definitely not a crane job from on shore!   Dismantling is probably the only option.   It has certainly drawn a good crowd of sightseers.     Z**

I was told that they were trying to start the engine, I did see some blue smoke around an hour or so after I took these pics, but had the wrong camera with me then! 



sending in the BIG digger!

I noticed the cafe at Rhos Point being boarded up this afternoon!

Yes, always easier for CCBC to board it up and leave it, rather than actually let it to someone who can reopen it!

Should be still there. Basically, you take the footpath from Penrhyn Beach East down onto the beach, turn left and keep walking until you find it, it's a couple of hundred feet along the beach..

It amused me that the radio news was still reporting that the vehicles had been 'rescued'. All was calm as we passed at high tide this morning, but the prom was littered with huge pieces of equipment.A bloke in a large black car drew up on the double yellow lines and gazed out to the site of the sunken digger causing a traffic build up, then set off again. Wonder if he was counting the costs?

The digger was removed in the early hours of this morning, they started work at about 2 am to remove it.

Hmmm...angels.

That damage was done last year, sadly. Morons.
