Beach Walk 718 – Flat Stanley Goes to Hawaii

Shane’s Uncle Bob is an educator in Nebraska and he connected us with three second-grade classrooms at Linden Elementary School. Flat Stanley is a well-established school project that helps the children around the world learn about literacy and other places and connect with people far beyond their local neighborhoods. These Flat Stanley’s traveled all around the island of Oʻahu and are going home with aloha shirts, leis, and surfboards, thanks to help from our friends Kaile, Stacey, and Eric.

Beach Walk 346 – Hiking Hidden Hawai’i

Take a walk in the woods of O’ahu today as we explore hidden trails and insights from Brent.

I usually default to the beach, all beach, nothing but the beach. But our friends Chris and Lana called and invited us on a hike up Aiea Ridge today. Curious timing, as it appears tourism travel to Hawai’i was down slightly last year, as people are wanting to see new places.

I wonder. How much have they wandered off the usual tourist trails? I am guilty of staying with the familiar myself. But today is a good opportunity to change that.

BrentDog – mahalo for the inspiration for today’s show!
Kimo Watanabe – mahalo for today’s music! (“Morning on Haleakala Highway”)

If you like hiking and are coming to O’ahu and like to hike, here’s the book we use: The Hikers Guide to O’ahu. This was hike #16, Aiea Loop.
