  • After I begin single sculling every weekends at 61yo, I want to be here from Japan for enjoying single scull. Fortunately HRC helps me sculling here while this visit Hawaii. Wonderful!

  • Do not fall in here. It's toxic

  • Ala Wai Canalを眺めていたら、一台のピックアップトラックが斜め停車し、あっという間に赤いパイロンを並べて交通を規制。続いて車から出てきた男が曲がったヤシの木にするすると登り始めたと思ったら、バッサバッサと枝打ちを始めたではないか。職人の技は、どこで見ても大したものだ。お見事。

  • 원래 습지대 1928년 조성된 공원 아침 산책하기 좋음.

  • 운하를 따라 아침산책하기 좋아요
