is this canoe under a tree, so far away from the water? I always wonder that when I walk past it at Waimea Bay Beach Park. It's assumed a permanent position there, right beside the lifeguard tower. It could be part of the "decor" - since there are also old fishing floats hanging from the tree and an antique wooden surfboard nearby. Or maybe it's a relic from the days before they rescued swimmers and surfers on wave-runners here?
