Winter brings surf. Although we love to snorkel, we discovered a great affection for boogie boarding this year at Hanalei.
In the summer Hanalei Bay is like a lake–and frankly it’s rather boring. Great for little kids because there’s no surf and the sand bottom is soft. But this time of year, Hanalei Bay is one of the only places you can safely swim and boogie board on Kauai’s North Shore. Nine people have drowned on Kauai since the beginning of the year (yes, two more in the last few days). So we’ve been delighted to have this place to play and enjoy the waves and water, safely for all of us.
Today I’m headed back to California with renewed energy and excitement. I’ve been gestating new insights, perspectives, information and programs that I’ll be bringing you this year. I love having unstructured time out in the nature, time to sleep in, and reading novels with my family to help me open the space inside for new things to come is. So stay tuned–much more to come!!
