     Somehow the warm, gentle winds of Hawaii seem to blow at Hana Hou in Newport Beach! Hana Hou means "encore" and I really look forward every Sunday to another Day of Rest, "playing it again" in God's Great Outdoor beach cathedral. Just taking in the warm sun, the relaxing water, the adventuresome canoe excursions, the happy ukulele music and the fun-loving, friendly people is like taking a relaxing Hawaiian vacation every week without the 7 hour flight and the pricey airfare! Whether I'm enjoying sitting in the beach shade chatting with friends, nibbling from a vast variety of luau morsels, learning ukulele from amazing teachers like Uncle Harry, or experiencing a canoe paddle ride around beautiful Balboa Island with Captains John & Loretta, I feel life is beautiful and I am blessed to experience this heavenly paradise of a club here in my own backyard. Encore! Play it again! Hana Houuuuuuuuuuu!

     What a great time! Eric does a great job at "Hawaiian Outrigger 101," and ensures everyone has a good time while being safe. Really enjoyed being here today, and will come back as often as I can. I'll remember to bring a hat, sunscreen, umbrella, more water, and chair next time!

     Had a blast getting back in an outrigger after so long. I think I'm going to be sore - it's a workout but SO well worth the soreness. Great instruction by positive people. GREAT, GREAT group!!! I'm already looking forward to next weekend!

     Surprise, surpise, my first meet and I walk up to a concert from Bill Tapia and Pat Enos! What an amazing day. Got first hand instructions how to rig up the canoes, had to leave early so I passed on canoeing this meet but got to hear some uke solos and practice songs with some great people. Can't wait to come back. **hint hint you turn into the Police Department driveway and the Club is on the Left and you can park there or on the street!

     The club organization of the meeting was very good. We got our beginners lesson from Eric and from there we went to the canoes for our paddle in Newport Harbor. We had 3 canoes out so that meant we had 18 paddlers. We all had a good lesson and quality time in the canoes.
