Tye Dyed Sarongs


Tye Dyed using fuchsia and black on white rayon. Sarong/Pareo has fringe and in addition to being worn can also be used as a table cloth or across the bed or couch for a pop of color.

The fabric is rayon and comes in one size and measures 42″x72″.

Dyeing fabric is always exciting, providing a surprise every time I unwrap it and see the colors merge and create a new pattern.

More on the way….

Into the Misty Grey


KAHANAMOKU Outrigger Canoe Race June 14,2016

The paddlers showed lots of enthusiasm even though the day was cold, grey and windy. Some of the race courses had to be altered since the visibility was so bad.

Each team showed the true Aloha spirit and everyone was Ohana. There were paddlers from up and down the So Cal coast with men, women, coed &keikis all participating.

Funny how kids and dogs love to play in the water no matter the weather !!! They were running up and down the beach and swimming and some were on a SUP in a bikini.

Meanwhile…I was “hunkering down” in a warm coat that another vendor generously loaned me. I took this photo while sitting in my sand chair looking out through my LILIKAI women’s boardshorts. It was a fun and successful day AND I met some terrific ladies. Some women wait and some wish and these women are out their DOING!!!

Just Do It

This was a fun race put on by our famous outrigger club Lanakila. It was a combination event with a 5 mile ocean race in horrible conditions that even more than challenged the “Pros” with wind and heavy surf.There also was a 1 mile open race with SUP and outriggers in King Harbor. I got a 1st on the 1 mile. Kinda crazy racing next to an outrigger canoe – they churn up the water and some tipped over next to me and in front of me. So even though I was in the safe harbor I had a few challenges.
