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 282 – Winter Hawaii Style

So our winter is not like the more popular winter around the planet, but here it is nonetheless!

A nice walk on the beach today with gray sky, lots of wind, and just about every kite surfer in Kailua! Secret Cameraman got some great shots and edited an awesome show for us all.

Mahalo to Peter and Rich for sending in your snow pics, and mahalo also to Mike and Joe for your calls on the conch line. I can hardly wait to get back in the water myself!

E komo mai (welcome!) to those of you who heard about us from the BBC News Online.
