This time of year gets really hectic and not much beach walking is getting accomplished. Today I had a end of school year training class on using technology in the classroom, how apropo is that?
Earlier in the week I found a really cool website that I'm going to keep my eye on. Beachwalk with Rox at first seems to be a commericial site because she is promoting herself as a motivational speaker (and successful podcaster, blogger) BUT what a fun way to do it. Every couple of days she, her dog, Lexi, and her husband, the Secret cameraman, put together a video podcast of Roxanne discussing something as she walks on a beach in Hawaii. Interesting topics, beautiful scenery and what an inspiration! If you love dogs, you'll really like Lexi.
Roxanne says, "...most every day that I am here in Hawaii, I go to the beach to walk and swim with our dog Lexi, and Secret Cameraman comes along so we can share it with you. (Other days I am on the road or we do something special here in Hawaii!) We've had over 2 million downloads and have some of the smartest and kindest people in the world watching our show - which was started by accident, by the way!"
They also have a blog at barefeetstudios.com, which I have yet to investigate.
Don't spend too much time on line, you here? And do let me know what you think about "A Walk On the Beach".
As neighbor Wallace says, "It's better to live life than write about it."
