Hilo Landmark Comes Down!

It was a fire hazard, a rat trap and termite ridden! But we will still miss it! This is the corner of Keawe Street and Mamo Street, it was the site of Ohana grill for many years as well as numerous little shops and lunch counters over the really was a mess and needed to come down before some one got hurt, but it looks kinda naked around here without it :) Not sure what the owners are going to do now, really ought to leave it as parking which downtown desperately needs.

Partridges in Hawaii?

Partridges in Hawaii? Well, least I think they are Partridges? These cute little guys hang out in the Kohala Mountain region, a area most people would not recognize as Hawaii at all :)

This shot is taken from a road in the Kohala Ranch subdivision, this is where the Partridges like to live, lovely view but windy and dryer than most of the Big Island (Except the Ocean View area of Kau)...thats whats great about the Big Island, 11 of the 13 recognized climate zones! Something for everyone!
