Social distancing is living aloha
We are in unprecedented times in our lives. The whole world is. The truth hurts…but we need to know the facts. I have followed the following incredible individuals are who are giving us the facts, whether we want to hear the truth or not. Education is better than ignorance. It could save your life and those you love around you. Then you can understand the need to have social distancing. If you LOVE people…stay away from them! We need to relearn our thinking. Visiting family member could kill them…. Dr. John Campbell This amazing doctor from the UK is giving very detailed information daily without fear but facts! Chris Martensen from Peak Prosperity.

Beautiful west maui~
Sure wishing I was in Oahu now let me tell you! My decision not to go because of some personal situations and the COVID-19/Coronavirus was the hardest choice I had to make. Good thing I did! The next day the WHO announced that it is a pandemic! As well, Canada announced that Canadians would have to be in quarantine for 2 weeks after coming home! A couple days later, they said for all International travelers to return home! Yikes….good call! Anyways…Beautiful west Maui…. Don’t forget to check out Papawai Lookout just after Maalaea. During the Winter months, you can see Humpback whales! Pāpalaua Wayside Park is where we started our kayak trip! Watch out for Kiawe tree with huge thorns; they sometimes end up in the sand and they can pierce your shoes. The best beach for surfing if you have your own surf board/SUP is Launiupoko Beach Park.

Living aloha in hard times…
Sadly, life can dish things out to us that we don’t know how to handle. Its in these difficult times its hard to ‘deal’ with them with compassion, respect and grace. You could be feeling tremendous loss, sadness or disappointment. Loosing my dad, and almost my mom; in a very short period of time, put me to the ultimate test…to Living Aloha. Sounds corny to the average person, but to the Hawaiian people; its a way of life. They greet one another with such passion and love; like it could be the last day they will see each other. They’re not afraid to show there love for one another. So no regrets if something happens to that special person. So how do you live aloha? Treat everyone that you love, the way that you may never see them again. Simple right? Not really. We are always in a rush to do whatever it is we need to do. But, let us try to greet friends and family with unbridled love and affection…cause what do we have to lose? Maybe them…. 🙁 Mo Ono Acai Bowl Food Truck in Kahului for the absolute best ACAI BOWL EVER!!! Get their lilikoi syrup as a topping….YUMMO!!

The wave that almost killed me…
Photo credit : Hawaiistagram All to often we travel with ‘vacation brain’ thinking that nothing bad will happen to you or your family in paradise. So too keep you and your loved ones safe, I go into details of my injury and basically what not to do. I also discuss rip tides that can be very scary if caught in them and how to save yourself if you ever are. Check out www.hioceansafety.com for a comprehensive guide to ALL popular beaches regarding what beach is the safest, life guarded and stats on injuries. Do not be like me and in a rush to get into the water. When in doubt, don’t go out~
