|Tangles: Auras, Beadlines, Black Pearlz , Sird|
Update on February 18, 2015:
As it turns out, this pattern was already deconstructed and named by Dilip Patel, a CZT in India! You can see his blog post about it here. So this tangle is actually called Sird. I've deleted my step-outs, but I'll leave the rest of my post here. There are some photos of our lovely vacation, and the tiles with this pattern may be of interest and inspiration. But Sird it is, from now on! Thank you Dilip!
(Back to the original blog post...)
I was very fortunate to spend two weeks recently with my husband on the lovely - and almost unknown - Caribbean island of Dominica. No, not the Dominican Republic. :)
Nine years ago, Bruce spent three months there working on translation projects with a friend. He's always wanted to return, and take me with him. Here are a few photos of places we went.

Dominica's capital city is Roseau and I saw this pattern on some sidewalk tiles there. The island went back and forth between the British and the French for some time, eventually ending up British but with a lot of French remnants, especially in place names and Créole words.
