The Saturday Photo Hunt--Bridges

Today I'm linking to Saturday Photo Hunt, I know, I know I'm a day late!!
The theme of the week was "Bridge". Now the following photos are not technically of a bridge in the ordinary sense, but I think this pineapple dumping pier resembles a bridge. Hope you enjoy the shots and the brief story.
When one thinks of Hawaii pineapple probably comes to mind.
Just north of where we live you will find the Kauai Pineapple Dump Pavilion (it's located on the Coconut Coast Path). Years ago, this was where the Hawaiian Canneries Company would dump their pineapple waste. The waste was hauled from the cannery by rail from Kapa`a to the end of this concrete pier and dumped into the ocean.  Unfortunately the  waste would travel several miles back to Kapa`a and attract fish and sharks :( not to mention the odor of decaying pineapple. 
 Would you consider that the circle of life?!?!?

It does make for an interesting photo stop and I think it would be a great spot for a movie scene!!

Please join us for Saturday Photo weeks theme is "intricate"
