Summer 2015, part 1

Part of July and August my husband and I traveled to Oahu Hawaii. It was a great trip. We stayed with my sister and brother-in-law. And were also treated to a trip by them to the Big Island.

This is Lanikai Beach, Kailua with the Mokes behind us. Look at the turquoise water! So lovely!
Hubs being silly. Ready for some sight seeing!
My sister, Lauren, and I on her lanai. Mountains in the background, turn to the right and you could see Kailua Bay just one block away!
Fresh papayas for breakfast from my sister’s tree!
One of my favorite days was when we found a beach along the North Shore where sea turtles were feeding on the algae. We counted 30 Honu!
The Big Island! Mauna Kea Sunset. It was in the 40s on top of the mountain. Brrr, after a day in the upper 80s along the shore line.
Akaka Falls.
Carl Smith Park, Hilo. We needed another day to have time to swim in the tide pools.
The volcano at night, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
The reason for the trip to the Big Island was for the HCRA State Canoe Championship 2015. My sister paddled in the Mixed Race, 3 men 3 women.
The team (my sister on the right), coach in light blue in back.
And yes! I did make it to several quit shops! I bought two Row by Row Experience 2015 kits from Kilauea Kreations II in Hilo and from Quilt Passions in Kailua Kona. I visited several other shops: Fabric Impressions in Hilo, Kilauea Kreations in Volcano, and Fabric & Quilting Delights in Kailua Kona. I didn’t make it to Topstitch in Kampala or H. Kimura, Inc. in Kealakekua.  On Oahu, I only fit in one quilt shop visit to Calico Cat in Honolulu. So many more quilt shops and islands to visit! Maybe we will make it back one fine day!
