Hawaiian Beach Project

I'm at the beach and have my sewing with me.

 I'm using fabrics I already had in my stash.

 I'm using a pattern that was given to me by a woman who's mother had made.  She gave me lots of Hawaiian patterns.

 I did change the pattern to fit the size of the fabric I was using.

The flower is the hibiscus, one of my favorites.

We go to Makena Beach, or Big Beach as it is also known.
It is on Maui.
Today was a great dolphin day.

You can see some young people were swimming out to them.

And there are whales in the back.

This is late afternoon lighting after the hour long rain.

Hawaii rain is warm so we were able to easily brave through it under our canopies.

This is linked to Esther's WOW.
