I have been in the boat almost as much as I have been blogging recently. Which is to say, unfortunately, not much.
But as 2012 approaches and I make my resolutions for the new year, paddling and blogging (much more) is at the forefront of my mind.
Myself and the girls managed to get out three or four times last month for recreational paddles. It was great and reinforced our desire to be back in the boat.
Speaking of boats, Lahaina Canoe Club had the good fortune to be donated a brand spanking new Bradley wa’a and it recently landed on these shores to be admired by all and to receive its blessing at Hanakao’o Beach.
Remember the rumors about Bengal tiger stripes? Well…
The boat was donated to LCC by the Makana Aloha Foundation – a foundation that was created in 2007 by husband and wife team JoRene and Gunars Valkirs, who are dedicated to supporting and improving the Maui Community.
Amazing people who really give back to the community and have given Lahaina Canoe Club a huge boost with the donation of this boat that will be primarily used for the club’s keiki crews.
It’s an incredible gesture and, I must say, a badass boat! Imua and huge mahalos, I’m sure, from anyone connected with LCC.
That’s all for now, thank you so much for your continued visits to my blog – readership continues to grow and I couldn’t be happier!
I’ll be back soon with more and some details of my first forays into the world of one-man paddling as I attempt to go it alone on an OC-1.
Bye for now, Laura
