Today’s Featured Guest Writer is Ken Muise, who last wrote us a post in 2015! Congratulations on the beach-move, Ken, from all of the Beach Treasures and Treasure Beaches treasure hunters (all of whom have moved to the beach since starting this website ^_^. We totally get it!).
Finally…I Moved to that Beach! (Well, Near it…)
Hello to all the beach lovers once again!
Nearly 2 years ago I wrote a guest post here on BT&TB about how much I loved looking for sea shells on Makaha Beach on the west coast of Oahu. Well, here it is: I’m retiring from the military at the end of March and I am actually moving about 400 yards away from that beach! It’s a condo/beach community called Makaha Surfside.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not rich. I just happened to luck into a 500 sq ft condo that is everything that I ever wanted. It’s a great deal.
So, in the last two years, what have I been doing on Oahu?
Going to the Beach-
LOL. Seriously, I think there are only a few beaches on the island that I haven’t been to. If you’ve been to Oahu then you know that it’s kind of a feat! Makaha is still one of my faves.
Visting the Beaches on the other Hawaiian Islands-
I’ve been to beaches on Maui, Big Island, and Kauai at this point. I’m here to tell you…it’s paradise! One of my favorite spots in the state is the beach that is part of the Marriott Kauai Resort. Man, it’s beautiful!
I have a couple different snorkel gear review sites online now and things are going really well. One of my favorite moments of my life was when my girlfriend and I got into the water at Honaunau on the Big Island and within 90 seconds we were swimming, watching and filming an entire pod of dolphins. It was awesome! Especially since so many visitors pay an arm and a leg to “swim with dolphins” while there on vacation. Check out my video…EPIC!
I really wanted to come back and say “thanks” to everyone at BT&TB for letting me guest post waaaay back in July of 2015. Something the military taught was to never fail to show gratitude where it’s meant. So, if you’re ever on Oahu…please hit me up and you’ll always have a couch to crash on…100 feet from the beach.
