I’ve lived here on Kaua’i for 14 years and am appalled by the disrespect for
all natural beauty we have on this island.
I often walk up in Wailua just
past the experimental station known locally as Loop Road. Yesterday there was a
box of flyers in the parking area fronting the Wailua Reservoir.
was it just dropped off, but it was an amount that could have been taken by the
owner to a dumpsite or put out to be collected by our weekly home refuse
Now that box of hundreds of flyers will start flying around the
parking area until the rain gets it and thus make more of a mess to an area
already littered by broken glass and other discarded trash.
Some days it’s
just not a nice walk looking and smelling the discarded, rotting pig
intestines, skin, heads, etc. and trying not to gag. There was a car I would
have to pass in which lay the remains of a butchered pig covered black with
Cars eventually get towed away. The next day a new bunch
starts to grow like mushrooms.
Gardeners trim bushes, cut down trees and
dump them on the side of the road. Part of this grows and becomes part of our
Kaua’i, the Garden Isle? Where is your pride?
