I think the message on this plaque tells the story better than I can.
The area is very beautiful, but it is quite a distance from Apia and the other stakes of strength. Here are some pictures of the area. The waterfall that is there is a favorite tourist attraction and many come there to swim in the pond and soak under the waterfall. The river provides lots of water. During the years of farming and early Church growth, the land was blessed to provide for the people. The story is that the people of Samoa started going there to see how they farmed and learn from them. Too bad it's not that way now.
This is a great picnic fale. On the other side is a river and lots more banana, kapok and other trees as you can see from the other picture.
