Reading at Petalea Beach, in Mavrovouni, near Gytheion. The sticks in front mark turtle eggs. The big Caretta Caretta leaves its eggs all over this beach, as on many other beaches in Greece. The little ones come out at full moon and wobble to the sea. There are lots of volunteer turtle watchers. First to put protection around the eggs and, when the babies have to find their way to the water, there shouldn't be other light sources to distract them. The volunteers look into that too.
Of course I am going to the beach with one of my patchwork beach bags.
I am planning to go more often to the beach this year. Last year I didn't go at all! And it is so relaxing! The second time I went I took this bag with me, together with the Boutari pareo. I love this one, because it has a real Greek island scene and because blue is my sea colour!
My daughter Alexandra choose the bag I just finished last week. She loves the colour and the pattern.
Two post ago I showed you the cushion one of my students was working on. Well, she finished it and this is the result. Good work Eleni!
Time for me to get back to work. Have a few I-phone covers to make and started a garden quilt. That will keep me busy for quite a while!
