Waikahalulu – Today known as the Liliuokalani Gardens which was once filled with an abundance of exotic flowers. Red Gingers, Yellow Gingers, Bird of Pradise, Torch Gingers and of course the Heleconia. This quilt was designed for that secret hideaway in lower Nuuanu. 90″ x 90″ Designed by John Serrao.
My Tutu Correa’s home was very near to Waikahalulu Falls. In fact today I live right next door to this legendary place. My mother would tell us that if you have the “sight” sometimes you could see the wahine mo’o (mermaid) siting on the rocks brushing her long hair. My mom would also tell us that Tutu would also warn the boys not to swim in that famous water hole because the wahine mo’o loves boys. Today records show that only the male gender has ever died at Waikahalulu Falls.
