Description:
Here is the published description. I feel the picture may lack focus so I would appreciate inputs.
The kings of Hawaii Island kept royal residences all around the island where they stayed during their annual trip to collect their tributes. One located at Honaunau has been partially restored and is part of the National Park system. A common feature of these residences was an artificial fish pond where seafood was stored in anticipation of the king's visit. This is one of several ponds at Honaunau.
(For my friends at Focussion. These ponds do have fish in them. Except for one. During the Japanese tsunami, a barracuda got swept into one and it is still there.)
