The end of Paradise Drive

The end of Paradise Drive.

I've lived on the Big Island of Hawai`i for over thirteen years now but still haven't got a clue when someone gives me directions. It's always left at Hualani-kamaaina and when you get to Kakahi-hipohaliburt turn right onto Pohoholokohuiholui-lo-puna-bruddha where you'll see the turn off for Lanahaihuapiu-kantpronounceit street. Just follow Hipi-aha'na'iloa-kai-lo'lo-lost'me-now and you might find the parking lot for Walmart if you're lucky.

I can't take my eyes off this picture. It was taken at the end of Paradise Drive. I know it's overdone and all that, but I can't stop looking at it.

It sure is a beauty, alright. I hope folks click on it to enlarge.

You forgot the standard "take a left where the old JC Penney used to be." Never mind that there are actually two locations where JC Penney used to be.

Ah, this was a funny post, made me laugh. I can understand it must be a bit complicated to take those directions.;)
The picture is stunning as always, you truly have a talent.;)

It looks like what you could see in a dream of a very beautiful, special place.

All - thank you for your kind comments!

Brad - where were the two JC Penneys or were these the two stores in the mall? (now Macy's I think - you can tell I don't shop there!). Just having two versions of the same shop in the one mall always confused the hell out of me, but I'm very simple.

I can't take my eyes off it, either. It does look like what Beep says: Something from a dream.

Wait, you guys had two JC Penneys?

Tom said...

I think we have two Macys now - I'm not sure, I don't shop there. They're in the same mall and basically it's one shop but separated by gender and a short walk.

I *think* these were previously the two JC Penneys but I might be wrong.

H&M tends to do that here: Set up different stores in the same mall to target different customer groups.
