For Example

This is after midnight last night on the Ala Wai. Yawn if you like. If you don't know, there's a one-way street between my apartment building and the Ala Wai canal. I hear this couple having an argument or I guess quarreling on the Ala Wai canal side of the street. However I and the neighborhood only get to hear the female's side of the story because apparently the male half of the couple isn't able to squeeze in a word as she summarily berets her significant other. After this goes on for 20-minutes, I look down from my lanai (balcony) and lo and behold, there's only a girl sitting on her bicycle by herself talking to what I assumed was one of those ear pieces or hands-free devices for a cell phone. Apparently, she's berating somebody on the other end of the cellphone connection. Finally after another full 20-minutes, all quiet. Perhaps, the battery ran out. Dunno.

Cloudia- did she stop by your section of the Ala Wai too? Lol.

That aerial photo got me thinking - What protects the Ala Wai golf course from being developed? I look at that land and think obviously someone wants to put condos there and obviously there's a reason they can't.

What gives?

Is it a very busy course, too?

owner- the land that the Ala Wai golf course sits on was bequeathed to the city by the Queen Emma Estate. Actually leased, I believe. A past governor tried miserably to convert the land into a city park, the bozo. The Ala Wai golf course is reputed to be the busiest municipal golf course in the nation.

Thanks for the history lesson. Lease seems like the most protective way to go there.

City park concept a bad idea because of the homeless?

"City park concept a bad idea because of the homeless?"

Lol, reminded me of Microsoft's .... "Please wait while the list (park) is being populated."

Good grief, Ron! Nobody yelled at her that you guys were trying to sleep, hunh? You're too nice. Pitiful!

Kay- Why use a cellphone, the party at the other end of the connection probably could hear her loud and clear from anywhere on the island at that hour of the night. Actually she had a pleasant voice for berating chastising her SO. I guess it's just that most people have a tendency to stay otta domestic arguments and all that.
