Beach Walk 631 – Interlude

A nice simple scenic Hawaii today. No talk. Just waves, tropical breezes, sunshine, and lapping waves. Enjoy!

Beach Walk 624 – To You Sweetheart, Aloha

I am actually in New York as I write this, and it gave me so much pleasure to be immersed in some archive files and music I found when putting this episode together.

If you’ve been to Hawaii you’ve likely heard this style of music either on the radio or while sipping mai tai’s at the beach watching the sunset. Or maybe as you view Kanoe Miller dance the hula at the Halekulani Hotel. It conveys so beautifully the feeling of those swaying palm trees; I just love it.

I also want to dedicate this to Tommy Sea, who is finally selling his house in Michigan and will be Hawaii-bound very soon. It’s been a long haul for him, and he certainly understands Aloha. If you liked this, please purchase the song; info immediately below.

Beach Walk 614 – Humanity on the Horizon

It was raining today and I didn’t sleep well this weekend, so rather than rough it in the elements, I chose to stay in and create a meditation for all of us.

Today’s episode is dedicated to Chris Brogan – you were in my heart tonight Chris. And by a strange coincidence, we were both Tweeting today at the same moment, about this article in the New York Times concerning the Web World of 24/7 Stress.

I love also that this music led me to the music of the Indigo Musicians. Their links are below.

Beach Walk 598 – Come Join with Me

I cannot stop watching this episode!

It was shot by moi, on the little Sanyo Xacti, there are water drops on the lens, it is a little over-exposed and a lot shaky, and of course I wanted more shots. But there was magic on the beach with Lexi this day. Then I heard this beautiful song on Dave’s Lounge #106 and I had to put these ingredients together. Sometimes the energy is so much more than the technique – this is true for me, today.

This episode is dedicated to each of you loyal viewers, who so generously receive whatever we share, who shower us with love and affection, who even travel all the way from Canada (and soon from the UK I hope) and share some of your precious vacation time with us.

I don’t know how to thank the Shanghai Restoration Project featuring Di Johnston for this beautiful song. I already purchased two copies of the album on iTunes. I hope you will purchase their music to encourage more of this in our world. As for Dave, I have listened to his podcast from the first episode, and he stands in rare company to have been so focused from the start, and he only gets better.

Beach Walk 579 – Diving Boobies

Heavy rains came in today so we are sharing some footage from this past Saturday.

Every winter the boobies come to town and take up fishing at the south end of Lanikai Beach. I can sit and watch them for long periods of time; birds seem to hold an aspect of freedom that I find so appealing. If we keep this up, we might have to join forces with The Animal Planet!

Hawaiian Word:
Manu: bird
ʻā: Booby
