Posted December 21, 2013. I know it’s almost Christmas and I should be wrapping presents, but I think I’m going to go catch a wave right now! You can be strong and vital after Lyme disease… and surf on a cool southern California morning in December.
Even if you’re still suffering from Lyme disease I wish you a very Merry Christmas! Next year will be better. Hang in there. Keep visualizing yourself well!
Last night I went out to dinner with friends at Duke’s of Malibu. Here’s a little something about Duke. What a great, positive guy. Thanks Duke for sharing your great spirit with the world.
Hawaii’s most famous citizen and the “Father of INTERNATIONAL Surfing,”
Duke Paoa Kahanamoku was born August 24, 1890 in Honolulu, Hawaii. He grew up in carefree Waikiki with the ocean as his playground, doing what he loved – mostly swimming, surfing, canoeing and bodysurfing.
At the age of 21 he won his first Olympic gold medal, then went on to represent the United States in the Olympics for 20 years, winning not only medals but the hearts of people all over the world. He is remembered as a swimmer not just for remarkable speed, but for his grace in the water, his good humor, and his wonderful spirit.
See you in Malibu at “Duke’s!”
