Join us on a 3-mile downwind standup paddle run on Maui’s north shore with The Butterfly Effect crew!
As I am here stretching and reaching to get out of my cocoon and transform into a truer version of me, a Beach Walks viewer sends me this link from YouTube about an amazing dog. I am totally inspired and hope you will be too. Thanks so much Celeste! You can meet Celeste in this episode of BeachWalks.tv.

From the original post:
“Surf dog Ricochet’s inspirational video highlighting her journey from service dog training, to turning disappointment into a joyful new direction, to surfing with quadriplegic surfer, Patrick Ivison, to fundraising for charitable causes. She is currently leading a fundraiser for a six year old boy named Ian who suffered a traumatic brain injury in a horrific car accident that claimed the lives of his parents. If you’d like to help Ricochet help Ian, please go to http://www.ripcurlricki.com. To follow her on Facebook… search for “Surf Dog Ricochet“. Thank you for watching, and donating to her charitable cause.”

I am out of town and left my intended footage back on my main hard drive so I found this remnant from last winter! It’s got a mood to it I think, and it’s dedicated to dog lovers and long shadows everywhere. The sound is minimal – just the sweet romancing rhythms of gentle late afternoon waves. Co-mingled with Lexi’s steady breathing, and a reminder from my friend Lola Jones to “breathe for pleasure.” I hope we at Beach Walks can cast a shadow of grace on you today. Mahalo for your patience in our absence.

As I have said many times before, “you meet the coolest people on the beach in Hawaiʻi!” Today we met Chris SantaCroce, aka Uber Shaman. It was his birthday, and he was starting the day at the beach with his puppies. He is a renaissance man – doing a number of things with his talents, and in a beach walks kind of way, spreading cheer and consciousness and geekiness to those he meets! To him, I was “that lady who walks the beach?” Yes, whenever I can!
