Watercress Farm

Considering that this photo was taken while driving down Kamehameha Highway at around 35 MPR (~56 KPR) it turned out ok, pretty good even ... don't you think?

I love this spot in Pearl City. Yep, in the middle of the city sits the tranquil little watercress farm. Just to illustrate - the parking garage you can see in the upper right corner is to a popular shopping mall called Pearl Ridge.

With the grass shack and coconut trees, it looks like it belongs on a disserted island some where lost in the pacific. It’s just so unexpected, that when you come upon it, you just have to appreciate it.

Any moment, Ginger and Mary Ann will come out of the hut screaming at Gilligan for something he did ;)

I does look very tranquil, great photo, I wouldn't even notice on the first glance, the parking garage if you didn't mention it.
Have a fun weekend.

You have lots of variety in subjects; this is unusual and unexpected but so much fun. Thanks for the explanation.

I'm surprised the menehunes did not try to take your camera away - nice shot - this place has been around for as long as I've known as a child!!!

It's hard to imagine that's in the middle of a city!

I'd like be the caretaker and spend my days sitting inside the grass hut shaded by the palms. How lovely.

If you hadn't pointed out the parking garage, I would have assumed this was a little more rural. I like that little hut.
