Beach Walk 762 – Whale Instead of Sail on Maui

Come swimming with us on Maui and listen to the sounds of whales underwater.

We were visiting Maui as guests of the Maui Visitors Bureau and were booked for a sailing canoe venture. This was going to be the highlight of my week as you all know how much I love the Hawaiian canoe! But, the wind was in town and the trip was canceled, much to my disappointment.

Maui is not called the “Magic Isle” for nothing though! Since we were already at the beach, we went in for a swim. The water is clear and beautiful so naturally I was underwater straight away. And then I heard something really familiar, but familiar only from my iPod not from “real life.”

Sure enough, it was the whales singing to me, “Don’t be disappointed Rox! We’re out here in the deep water reminding you all is well! Swim in this warm beautiful sea and you’ll find fun and pleasure all around you.” I cannot tell you how excited I was! In all my years of being underwater and seeing whales from boats, I have never once heard them singing while underwater. It was such a good reminder for all of us on vacation: don’t get too attached to any one thing! As Vene said, “there are treasures and mysteries awaiting us” – if we let it all flow.

Beach Walk 375 – Stress Silliness

Stress creates the silliest ideas. For a few hours I was going to sacrifice my twice a week outrigger paddling!

Fortunately, the whales spoke to me today and I came to my senses. But it points out how easy it is to let life’s pressures (even the good ones) worm their way into my mind.

We’re not quite ready for the official start of year 2, but hey! I had an irresistible urge to do this show. You see, we are so busy. I love doing Beach Walks, yet it too involves a number of sacrifices. Do you want us to continue it? Tell me what you think!
