オアフ島を歩こう!ナナクリ~ワイアナエ編

Imgp4046アラモアナまで家から歩いて40番のバスに乗った!
Imgp4056青空が見えて来たナナクリ・ビーチ。ホームレス・テントは見えない。遠くに見える煙突はハワイアン・エレクトリック社。
Imgp4057プウオフル・ビーチ。この辺からホームレス・テントが、、。
Imgp4077一瞬太陽が顔を出した!
Dsc00494ウレハワ・ビーチ。この辺からホームレス・テントが多くなリ出した。以前この辺りで写真を撮っていた男が殺された。万が一の事を考えて望遠で撮っておいた、、、(汗)。
Imgp4081ムービーマンの息子の寿司屋、「ハロー寿司」!

 
 このところハワイも寒い。
おまけに風も強く、雨の日も多い。
<こんな時、ホームレスは大変だろうなあ、、、>
そんな事を考えた時、ふとひらめいた!
<待てよ?今がチャンスかも知れないぞ!>
そう思ったらもう矢も盾もたまらなくなって、
アラモアナまで歩いてそこからバスに乗った。
乗ったバスは40番、「マカハ・ビーチ」行きだ!
マキキ地区は小雨が朝のうち有ったけど、晴れ間も見えた。
しかしバスを降りると、やっぱり天気が悪く、時々ぱらついている、、。
降りたバス停は、マカハ地区の始まり「ナナクリ」だ。

 実はこれだけ毎日のように寒くて風が強く、更に雨が降ってるとなると、
例のマカハ地区のホームレスは寒くて、とてもビーチになんかいられず、
どこかのシェルターに退避しているに違いないと踏んだのさ!
ナナクリのバス停のそばに小さなショッピング・モールがある。
そこから小雨に煙る「ナナクリ・ビーチ」を見ると、
案の定、夏に通った時あれほどあったっホームレス・テントが、まばらになってる!
<皆あんまり寒いんでシェルターに移ってるに違いない!くそっ!天気が良かったら、良い写真が撮れるのに、、、、!>
悔しがる健太、、。

 雨が止むまでナナクリ・マックで珈琲をすすった。
やがて30分もすると少しブルーの空が見え始めたけど、とても太陽は拝めそうもない。
雨は殆ど止んでいる。
<よし!出発だ!>
気合を入れる健太。
ホームレスがこのナナクリでは減っているとは言うものの、
この先延々と続く沢山のビーチはどうなってるか分らない。
この辺りは部外者にとっては当然危険地域だ。
2年ほど前にアメリカ本土からか来た観光客がビーチの写真を撮っている時、
辺りのホームレスに射殺されたのだ、、。
バックッパくを背負って早速海岸通りを歩き出した健太。
しかし幾ら被写体にカメラを向けても、一向に良い物が撮れていない、、(汗)。
光量が少なすぎる、、。

 ナナクリ・ビーチを過ぎてカラニアナオレ、プウオフルと、次々に続くビーチ・パーク。
ウレハワ・ビーチ、マリイ・ポイント辺りにから、ぐんとホームレス・テントが増えだした。
<ちぇっ、やっぱり危ないかも、、、>
怖がりの健太は、何だかその辺からバスに乗って家に帰りたくなっちゃった、、(涙)。
道路を走ってゆく車から時々クラクションが鳴る。
運転してる奴と目が合った。
<止めろ!こんなとこ歩いちゃだめだ!>
って言ってるみたいだ、、、(汗)。

 後悔先に立たず。
そんな時一人のホームレスが、先のほうの道路脇で何かやってる。
髪はぼうぼう、髭も伸び放題の痩せた男だ。
少しずつ近づくとどうやら自転車を直してるようだ、、。
だけど健太も男!
怖いけど、いかにも辺りの景色をめでている風体を装って、
そ知らぬ顔で通り過ぎることにした。
そしてまさにその男とすれ違おうとした時、
男が口を開いた。
「It's a beautiful right?」
ドキッとする健太。しかしまた何気無い風を装って、
「Oh yea! It's awesome!」
笑顔でそう言った。

 そのウレハワ・ビーチ辺りを過ぎると公園が更に広くなって、
1キロ以上向うの方まで続いている。
驚いた事にその公園には一つのホームレス・テントもなかった!
どうやらそこはマイパロア・ビーチのようだ。
マイパロア・ビーチを過ぎてワイアナエ・ビーチへ行く間、
有り難い事に、一瞬太陽が顔を見せてくれた!

 めでたくワイアナエ・モールSCに着いたのが3時半。
実はこのワイアナエ・モールには、
以前にも紹介したけど我がムービーマンの息子の、「ハロー寿司」があるんだ。
そこで遅めのランチを食べようかと思ったら、残ねながらもう閉まってる。
もしかしたら日曜は休みだったのかもね、、、、(涙)。

 今日の万歩計は18550歩を指してました!

健太さん:

想像するだけで雰囲気が伝わってきます。私も放浪癖が有って色々な所を歩き回りますが、ナナクリ辺りを歩く自信は有りません。<待てよ?今がチャンスかも知れないぞ!>、と思ったのは、雨と風でホームレスはテントの中だから歩いても平気と思ったわけですか?

去年の今頃ホノルルに居ました。ある日アラモアナ・モールに行き、家内はウィンドー・ショッピング、私は、フード・コート入口近くのテーブルに座って待っていようとそこに行きましたが、人が一杯で4人掛けテーブルにバックパッカーと思われる中・壮年と思われるカップルが座っていて、同じテーブルの2つの椅子が空いていたので、May I take this seat? No problem, it's yours. Thank you. ってな訳でニコニコ顔で座って、天気良くないし寒いよねなんて話しているうちに、はっと思ったのは、前のアラモアナ公園にいるホームレスの人達では? その後二人の会話を聞いてるうちに間違いないと思いました。アラモアナ・モールのあの場所、天気悪いときあの人達にとっては、良い憩いの場ですね。

18550歩ってことは、約8マイル(13キロ弱)ですか? 昨日の大雪が残っていて、こっちは歩くのは駄目です。いいなー、そっちは。

twyokさん

今日も窓の外には、霧雨のために乳白色の街並みが見えます、、。青空は何処にも見当たりません、、、。
<待てよ?今がチャンスかも知れないぞ!>と思ったのは多分長い悪天候で、皆シェルターに行ってると思ったんです。
寒い上に風も強いし、雨の日が続いてるし、、、。
「ホームレス殺すニャ刃物は要らぬ、雨の10日も降れば良い!」ってね、、、。
確に、フードコートは彼等にとって憩いの場だと思います。あそこは日本人も多いので、世界の最も進んだ国の一つである日本のmost sophisticatedな感覚を肌で感じることも出来るし、、(笑)!

いよいよ明日出発です。
それにしても東京の寒さが心配ですが、健太が行くと何時も天気は先ず問題ないので、それに賭けてみます、、(汗)!

明日からまた日本ですか。今週は雪は大丈夫でしょうね。
でも私はナナクリから向こうはやっぱり昼間でも歩く気はしないなあ。

sunの東京です。
昨日 茶楽の作品を入れ替えに行きました。
そして 嬉しいお土産を有難うございます。
さっそくcafeを・・・
わ~い。ハワイの香りだぁ~

気をつけて東京にいらしてくださいね!airplane
健太さんには逢えないけど
いつも どこかで擦れ違うかなぁ~なんて
ドキドキheart04しちゃいます。

健太さん

ナナクリ辺りは本当に危ないですから、気を付けて下さいね。
ホームレスにも色々な人がいますから、目と目が合っただけで喧嘩吹っ掛けてくるのもいるし、Hand Gun持ってるのもいますよ。
ナナクリだけではなく、深夜のワイキキも同じですがね。

いよいよ明日は日本行きですね。
寒い日本で食べるラーメン、美味しいですよね、今度は寿司の写真でも見せてくださいね。

お気を付けて、行ってらっしゃい。

池ちゃん

行ってきます。美味しいいラーメンや寿司を沢山食べてきます。すしも贅沢を言わなければ、回寿司で1500円も出せばそれなりに満足できます。
ナナクリの先はやっぱり止めたほうがいいですよね、、(汗)。

冬薔薇 さん

喜んで頂けて何よりです。
今回も茶楽の新作、時間があれば寄らせていただきます。
またニアミスがあるかもしれませんね、、(笑)!

梅干おやじさん

あの辺は本当に危険な地域です!
でも天気が悪かったのが、何より癪でしょうがありません、、。
また夏になって天気が良い頃を狙って行きたいと思ってはいますが、、、。
ラーメンと寿司三昧!
行って来まーす。

始めまして、こんにちわ。
私実はワイアナエに住んでます!  私も最初の頃は怖いのかな?と思いましたが、「住めば都」、海は綺麗で人は少ないし、住んでいる人も皆素朴で温かい人ばかりだし、1軒1軒の土地も広いし、今では気に入っています。
ただ、現実に危険な事が多い事も事実です。でも土地に馴染んだ格好さえしていれば、ホームレスの人達は何もしてきませんよ。
ウエストコーストには昔からのハワイの伝統や文化を受け継いで暮らしている人が多いので、オハナを感じられるし、イムなども家の庭でできたりなど、すばらしい面もあります。

ちなみに、どなたか、ウエストコーストに住んでいる日本人を知っていたら教えて下さい。 お友達を探しています。
