Beach Walk 710 – The Witches of Lanikai

It was a dark, cold, stormy day on the water but the witches of Lanikai were out paddling in their pointy black hats. Lexi was warding off the bad spirits.

Hawaiian Word:
Hoe: paddle

Beach Walk 709 – Happy Birthday Lexi!

iPod | 2:52| To Embed or Email: click above

Our wonderfully thoughtful and generous Beach Walk friend and Guardian Angel on The Reef, Susan, created this Happy Birthday video for our Lexi. Lexi is 8 years old today and continues to be one of the bright lights of our lives. She is also single-handedly responsible for getting us away from our computers and to the B E A C H most days. We have to spell it or else she goes into a circling tizzy when she hears the word spoken.

Mahalo Nui Loa (Thank You with Much Love) Susan, who also has a dog names Lexie (spelled differently) for your loving support, kindness, and thoughtfulness over the years.

We love you and consider ourselves blessed to have you in our life.

Hawaiian Word:
Hauʻoli lā hānau: _Happy Birthday_

Beach Walk 642R – Memorial Day in the Pacific

We originally filmed this episode for Memorial Day in 2006. But it clearly stands out as a timeless message, and represents the true magic of Beach Walks. It is all completely unscripted, no shot list, we just showed up and worked as fast as we could before the sun set. Sometimes, you know the universe is on your side.

This is one of our favorite and most powerful episodes, though you won’t be finding us at the beach. Today’s show was filmed at the Hawaii Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. 50,000 leis were donated, and over 100 young Boy Scouts (thanks for the correction Mark) placed a lei and a flag on each gravestone. I was quite stirred to be in the presence of death while smelling the sweet scent of plumeria lei. Though most of those buried here are from modern wars, this “punchbowl” of an ancient volcano was the site of Hawaiian aliÊ»i burials and human sacrifice of those who violated the kapu or taboos.

Dedicated to my dad and my friend Eric, who’s done two tours in Iraq.

Hawaiian word:
PÅ«owaina: hill of sacrifice
Kaua: war
Kapu: taboo
Maluhia: peace

Beach Walk 640 – A Question of Companionship

I read what was a tabloid review of comments Oprah allegedly made to Jennifer Aniston. “Get a dog and stop thinking about getting a man.” Well, Lexi and I would like to vouch for the tremendous canine companionship benefits, but even more so, being able to take one’s mind off of a non-problem (“getting a man”) is a quite thing we can all practice!

Hawaiian word:
ʻĪlio: dog
