Wondering what to do on a slow weeknight evening with your significant other?
Feel like bringing the kids out on a mini-adventure?
Grab a stargazing chart (and possibly a telescope or set of high powered binoculars), a set of headlamps, a 'Hand Picker 3000', your reusable trash bucket, beach blanket, your camera, and something to eat and drink and head to your nearest or favorite beach on foot or by bicycle and gaze up at the stars, share a bottle of wine or a tea with your partner, and then - when you start feeling restless - do a mini beach clean-up!
HOA went out last night and had a blast finding and capturing pictures of various creatures, staring up at the heavens and studying the constellations, and cleaning up a wide variety of rubbish: some left behind by beachgoers - including lost flip flops, food container waste, and miscellaneous paper and plastic - a wide variety of nets and ropes that washed up on shore, a large section of a broken boogie board, and some black rubber electrical tubing.
Side note and offer: The use of the Hand Picker 3000 in combination with the bucket made cleaning up articles left on the beach easier, cleaner, safer, and more convenient than you could possibly imagine. Not having to bend over or dirty one's hands makes the experience exponentially more enjoyable and we also found it easy to travel by bicycle to and from the beach by putting the handle of the bucket over the handle bars and the HP 3000 across the top of the handle bars horizontally. IF ANYONE WANTS A HAND PICKER 3000, WE WILL MAKE IT FOR YOU AND DELIVER IT ANYWHERE IN KAILUA OR LANIKAI AT COST. Just let us know and we'd be happy to provide you with one. We realize that with many transplants on the island, not everyone has access to tools or the time to get to the hardware store. We are happy to do this for you. Just let us know, promise to use it, and share a pick of you putting it to good use on a star gazing and beach cleaning mission of your own!!!
