By the bridge and the aformentioned graffiti is this sewer outfall.
It's sort of waterfallish. And walking over to take a
picture of this was the main reason I got up close to (and perhaps even
saw) the graffiti in the first place. A little after midday in
the afternoon sun, it really was too hot for a picnic, but I liked
it enough to make a GIF.
A couple hundred yards away across a grassy field, there was a
footbridge that crossed the stream. This is a picture of the main
waterfall from the center of that span.
And here's a GIF of the waterfall with the camera steadied on the
railing. I'm conflicted between my desire to take better pictures
(and therefor having to carry around a tripod and a bigger camera --
perhaps with a super-duper telephoto lens) and the convenience of using
a pocket sized digital camera that only sports a 12x zoom. For now I use
the later, but someday...
And here's another view of the waterfall (with a few more views to
come). To me, it's the most interesting feature of the Lili'uokalani Botanical Garden,
located almost at the center, and likely the reason this little area
was turned into a park in the first place. And really, no 'story'
yet, because as of yet I hadn't decided to do a story. Rather, I
was working on the assumption I'd make this into travelogue entry or
something of the ilk. But that was going to change soon enough.
(((Note: while the pictures are real (as real as pictures can
get) all the text should be treated as fiction -- or at least,
Nothing has been fact checked. Things change.
And the truth sometimes only serves to get in the way of a
good story. Thus, taken as a whole, these web pages that
comprise this story should be viewed as a record of one
man's flight of fancy as he takes a walk on a long sunny
afternoon. Nothing more. Nothing less. And most
disrespect to any individual (living or dead) is intended.)))
