Meeting the beach bunny

Just a small moment from this morning’s walk on Kahala Beach.

Due to the Sony Open golf tournament, we’ve had to revise our daily walk to avoid the Waialae course and all the tournament activities.

So heading in the other direction, down the beach towards Black Point, we meet different people and animals.

Today Hao met a beach bunny. A real one. Everyone was a bit cautious, including Hao and the little bunny.


Walking with Hao

It was cool, clear, and quite beautiful on the beach early this morning.

Hao, the dog who loves to chase fish while we walk with his people, was very much in evidence today.

Enjoy the view!

Black Friday and the calendars are ready!

Hey, if you’re looking for a few gifts to give friends, my annual calendars are ready and available to order.

Cats, dogs, or dawns! Your choice.

I mainly make these for myself. They become our holiday gifts to friends and family. But once they’re set up, they’re available for others to purchase.

I don’t really make anything on the sales, not more than a token dollar per calendar.

There are three versions again this year. One features the cats that share our home. Another spotlights the dogs we walk with most mornings on Kahala Beach. And the third shares a bit of what we see at dawn during those same morning walks.

They are available for order online from Just click on any of the covers shown below to get to the order page. There’s a preview link available for each calendar.

I hope you enjoy them. We do.

Great gifts

Take a deep breath and check out a few of our Kahala morning dogs

A quiet pre-election Sunday and time to catch up with a few of our canine friends in Kahala.

This week’s dogs are part of our basic pack. They’re insiders, so to speak.

Here are the lead dogs of the week, Pumpkin and Hao.

You might recognize Hao as the dog that loves to hunt for fish. But when the tide is high, there isn’t much beach to walk along in this part of the coast, and we turn inland and walk through the beautiful “meadow” that just a little later turns into a rather busy golf course.

They would rather be walking on the beach. We would, too. But they’re happy to accompany the people wherever we all go. Dogs are like that, it seems. Cats, not so much.

Oh…the dogs in the last among today’s pictures live along the 7th fairway of the Waialae course. And every morning, they run around and bark greetings as we go by. One of these days we’re going to have to learn their names and be properly introduced.
