Taking the family to Waimanalo Beach, one of our favorite stretches of shore on the island.

The above is the embedded video player from Vimeo, one of the few online video hosts to serve up HD content. To see the HD video (and not a scaled and compressed Flash version), however, you need to view it at Vimeo or download the original movie file (1280x720/MP4). It should look great on an Apple TV.

You can also watch this video via low quality but fast loading Flash players at YouTube, Yahoo! Video, Viddler, and downloaded from the Internet Archive.
