I found myself in a rain forest (without the steam) but still green, lush and wet. I was a little disconcerted. This place was beautiful and yet not my normal 'home'. I feel that same odd dislocation now; I love the ocean but wonder why I am so fixated when it is not where I normally feel connected.
These did not photograph as well as I would have liked but the day is too lovely for me to spend more time on them. You will get the idea; I have used all my paper beads and some painted shells to add to the fibres. The leftovers were put on this bookmark - inspired by the talented (but blogless) Jen Jones, who gave me a similar beaded one years ago.
