Here are a few of our local favorites... when we have time, that is...
Grace, Are all of those on the Big Island?

I worked at Pohakuloa for three years, and never visited a beach once. "when we have time, that is..." is so true! :sigh:

You mean like this ?



Even the ugly parts have their charm

This is exactly where I live by the way. Not in one of these huge buildings, but in a 4-storey building not far from there. I see those buidlings when I look out my window.

Do you see the tram is going to Moscou ? Yep, we have a Moscou as well

This is my house, and my street, and I have a mill I can see from our house.

Well actually Deception Bay, Depression Bay is one of the local nicknames. One of the nicer ones.
This was a town in the middle of nowhere with cheap land where the state government in their wisdom decided to build a lot of public housing.
Imagine - public housing, no local employment, no amenities, no public transport... I think what the government did might be more kindly called sweeping a problem under the carpet.
Locals call the place D Bay. I have lived here 20 years and lately there are people trying to make the place a bit upmarket. These people decided Deception Bay was not the best name for such a beautiful place, and suggested its name be changed to Endeavour Bay. As if! We don't want to live in E Bay!!!

Aha! the old D Bay. I went to high school with people from D.Bay, but 20 years is not long enough ago to have been to school with me!

I got it two units higher, but found out I was violating zoning laws. So I had to lower it to its present height.

Ruby Beach is located on the Pacific coast in Olympic National Park, and is of my favorite beaches.

Here is part of the city where I go to the University of Adelaide:

and the city

And yes, we also have the usual main roads flanked by grotty used car dealers and overhead power lines. But Adelaide is very clean and parts of the city do look good. Partly climate, it's dry but next to the ocean so a lot of pollution and dust gets blown away.
