Beach Walk 700 – Unite and Go Forward

Pupukahi i holomua
Translation: “Unite to move forward.”

We celebrate 700 episodes together with you. A hui hou.

— Hawaiian Proverb gathered by Mary Kawena Pukui
“By working together we make progress. This saying would be especially applicable to the Hawaiians on their canoes where each paddler would have to pull the paddles together on command in order to make the canoe move forward quickly forward.”

Hawaiian Word:
Holomua: movement, progress
Pupikahi: United, as in harmonious co-operation

Beach Walk 610 – We quit!

Shane and I are tired of doing Beach Walks; we’re retreating back into our caves as being on the leading edge is just too tiresome.

But fear not! Several Beach Walks viewers have ideas for a replacement show. Watch them here and then tell us which you prefer. Go here to get your own cave pic.

Hawaiian word:
Ha’alele: to quit

Beach Walk 596 – Favorite Things About Hawaii

We invited Bob and Sue Schroeder from Canada over to visit our beautiful windward shores, to see something besides Waikiki.

They were walking, while Shane, Lexi, and I were swimming. As we came out of the water, I was approached by another couple, who had noticed Bob and Sue, then saw Lexi out swimming. “Are you Rox?” And so we met Jeanne and Tom from Minnesota! We didn’t have our usual gear, but we did have a lot of fun! Join us as they tell us some of their favorite discoveries about Hawaii, courtesy of Sue, a Toastmasters club president who came up with the “Table Topic!”

Hawaiian Word:
Kupaianaha: surprising

Beach Walk 595 – Cranky Geek

One of the online videos we watch on our Apple TV at home is Cranky Geeks. They cover tech topics, but one of my favorite aspects of the show is the name.

I just love how people are more and more choosing to be who they are. It was similar to what struck me in the Iconoclast episode with Laird Hamilton and Eddie Vedder I talked about in Beach Walk 573. But I am often slow to allow that same awareness into my personal relationships, especially with Shane aka Secret Cameraman aka my own Cranky Geek. Being true to who you are is not just for celebrities any more!

Mahalo to Dave for providing today’s intro – what a great voice!

P.S. – Dave is my new friend, and is not (so far as I know) a “cranky geek.” Watch the episode to find out who is. 🙂

Hawaiian Word:
Maʻalahi: simple

Beach Walk 593 – Two Years of Love

We started Beach Walks exactly two years ago.

Amazingly, we went 402 days without missing a day! Now, we are enjoying our leisurely five days a week schedule. We barely made it today before sunset, but what a reward! It was a perfect day and we stayed for another hour to have pupus and a twilight swim.

Hawaiian Word:
Lua: two
