Adventure and Culture Collide in a Canoe

5 Comments 12 December 2013

“Makaukau?” (are you ready) Tim yelled from the back of the canoe I was ready.  In fact I was feeling pretty confident. The sun was out, the water was pretty calm – it was a perfect day for rowing. “Hoe Hapai!” (paddles up) he continued. I raised the paddle as Tim had taught us a [...]
