I am glad the Brady’s visited Hawaii for several weeks in 1972 for a three parter. It’s still at the top of my filming experiences. Please note that the Tiki Bobby found, the same one Greg was wearing when he wiped out on a coral head while surfing, didn’t REALLY bring bad luck.
Hawaii has long been my favorite vacation, relaxation, rejuvenation destination. Specifically the island of Maui and more specifically the beaches of Kaanapali.
How great it is to find myself here this week and next week plus all of January at the Kaanapali Beach Club, which is a Diamond Resort, where I have been invited to join a terrific troupe of performers including the Akima family and my co-hostess, Makalapua, to interpret the rich history of Hawaii and her people. Our Luau is known as the Feast At the Beach and this week, A Very Barry Christmas. It is a traditional and beautifully told Luau and there’s me with my attempts to become an Honorary Hawaiian. Throughout the show I try just about everything to be worthy of the honor. I tell stories, I host, I try to learn the native language, I invoke my experiences with Don Ho and make Tiny Bubbles a sing-a-long. At one point I don a grass skirt (just like the one Alice was wearing when she threw her hip out) with beads, leis and a headdress. Finally I try and make music with a conch shell. I can’t give away the ending here, but it helps my quest that I wear the original Brady Tiki throughout the show.
I wish everyone could join me for this oceanfront sunset on this magnificent island paradise.
I wish you a very Mele Kalikimaka,
