Mele Kalikimaka!

I don’t mean to alarm you, but Christmas is right around the corner.

I mention this for one simple reason: I will be going for a swim at Kaimana Beach on Christmas. Hopefully you will able to join me, but you probably won’t. If you are here now as you read this, I strongly urge you to get in the water every single day until you go home. On Christmas, you won’t be swimming. But you will have given yourself a gift to last years, maybe a lifetime.

If you are looking forward to a trip to Oahu, plan to do here what you can’t do there. Put that swim at the top of your list. Savor every moment in our beloved island home. If by coincidence you are here on Christmas, and you see someone with a big smile and a curly-haired daughter on Kaimana Beach, wave to us, please.

Mele Kalikimaka … and aloha!
