Beach Walk 510 – Sad Ferry, Happy Animals

The Super Ferry has been shut down for now, awaiting an Environmental Impact Study or new legislation, or both.

We here in Hawai’i have been getting some bad press about this issue. And some people are truly upset. Most that I have spoken with are reasonable – do the study, plan for potential problems, but bottom line the ferry will add value to many lives.

By a sort of co-incidence, my friend Ava sent a link to this slide show about a polar bear frolicking with some dogs up in the Arctic. I found the pictures truly amazing, and I keep returning to the thought, Animals Are Conscious. (See “BW #162 and BW #448.) That doesn’t mean they do not sometimes need our protection; it just means that in many cases they are capable of taking care of themselves.

BTW, we sure had a lot of dogs on the beach playing with us today too.

  1. …great show (as always) – I’m over being wound-up by the Superferry situation.

    I think Hawaii is always going to be an anomaly of one sort or another, and in hindsight, I think that is one of her virtues.

    In fact there is still so much about Hawaii I am in love with that all of this is just a bump on the road.

    I no care… 😉
