more clues

Looking up from my chair.....feel the warm breezes? Boy, I sure wish I were in Cape Town, South Africa like some of you thought. I've never been there and sure would be nice! But you were on the right track, as the penguins WERE from South Africa, although they were just on display in one of the hotel complexes here. I just thought it unusual, because you sure don't expect to see penguins in a warm climate like this!
My early AM projects, I hope to have all 24 done by the end of this trip.....
A week or so before I left, I ran into a quilting friend of mine and she mentioned going on vacation and I told her that that was one of our stops on our trip! We exchanged schedules and hoped we could connect. It's so funny how things turn out..her and her husband have been on a number of islands and happened to be on the same island as we were. We arrived first and found out that their hotel was only 4 blocks from ours! We hooked up yesterday, and went quilt shopping! Amy-of Calico Cat--we found a quilt shop in your honor! It was the Calico Cat also. A very small and crowded store with outdated fabric, but the owner was very nice. We did find a few things to add to our bags. Then she told us about another fabric store and they carried a few bolts of cottons! She must not have been in the store in a while as a good part of this large store was all cottons! That's a picture of me and Brenda in front of some of the quilts.
Here is the great store we found....or were led to....now, have a better idea of where I am? :)

And I thought I was being clever recognising the South African penguins...
