Pirate Jim's Kanikapila - May 24, 2016

Aloha kākou! 

I hope you all enjoyed your long weekend. This weekend I ran a half marathon with my mom up in Red Deer. It was pouring rain and we got extremely wet. It felt like Hilo, but with a very cold wind. Hahaha! I am happy to report I beat my personal record by 15 mins. Woot woot! 

My Hawaiian word of the week is Naupaka. Naupaka is a native shrub most often found in the mountains and near the shoreline. Naupaka is, arguably, most famous for its small white half-flower which grows abundantly on the shrub. There is a story of two lovers who, after being driven apart by their families, were exiled: the man to the mountains, and the woman, to the ocean. They became the two varieties of the naupaka plant, each with a half flower representing their broken love. 

This week we are back at the House of Yates! So hele on down to the Kanikapila kākou!
