Beach Walk 402 – Think Different About Friends

Internet databases are great at finding the similar. I like to experience the differences in friendship.

And it is something that has really blossomed since I moved to Hawai’i. I have a much wider array of friends here, friends who have opened up my life to so many new experiences and riches, not to mention cool new sunglasses in honor of Dr. Trey.

My very cool friend Kaile is here today, along my good friends Secret Cameraman and Lexi.

Mahalo nui to all of my Beach Walks friends supporting our little time off to catch up on the rest of life.

Beach Walk 387 – Fair Weather Friends

It’s full on winter here at the beach, which means we have the shore almost to ourselves.

That phrase, “fair weather friends” has a negative connotation, and is just the sort of thing I like to deconstruct here on Beach Walks. Yes, I prefer the sunshine too, but all is not lost when it is cold and rainy. Or when friends are down and cranky.

I prefer not to judge people’s preferences, but instead allow each of us to have our up and down days. The ocean, she is always there regardless of her mood, and does not seem to fret over who shows up or not. It’s a nice reminder for me today.

Many people I know prefer me when I am sunny and cheery. Heck, I prefer myself that way too! Still, I get tired and cranky too. Rather than take it too seriously, I recommend my friends just wait a little while as the weather is sure to change. 🙂

Beach Walk 351 – Aloha Friday with Friends

A laid back evening with friends, Hawaiian style, to bring you smiles.

It rained all day so I went to a friend’s house to film under their covered lanai. Well, what you see is my good friend Kaile and a laid back Friday evening.

Rain, banana tree, sushi-making, ukulele-playing, laughter – life is good! Thanks for hanging out with us.
