Tye Dyed Rayon Sarongs/Pareos

Same sarong tye dyed in 3 different colors and worn 3 different ways.

Brilliant tropical colors in orange and blue and indigo — a perfect piece to throw in your beach bag or take on a cruise or to a resort. Nice to have for those times you want to have a cover up to go over a bikini so as to feel a little less “cheeky”.

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.

SCOOP IT UP! I found this while paddling in King Harbor. Quite a challenge since it was full of water….

PICK IT UP! If you see it while walking  take it home or put it in a bin.

BLOWING IN THE WIND! In the bushes and on the rocks….if everyone would pick up at least 1 piece of plastic a day it would help our oceans and sea life.

JELLIES – Oh so beautiful and soft to the touch – almost like Jello! Experience these at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, CA

RAYS also at THE AQUARIUM OF THE PACIFIC. A must see if you live in the area or or are or visiting. These have about 4′ “wing span”


BAT RAY & GUITAR RAY  We were actually able to touch these rays and were amazed at how gentle they are and soft like squishy velvet.   The Bat Rays I encounter in King Harbor Marina are about 6″-18″ and are kind of brown. We also have a Leopard Bat Ray – dark spots on cream colored “skin”. They glide and fly like birds -only under the water.

Celebrate and protect our Oceans and it’s incredible Sea Life!!!
