What About Me?
By: Jamie Anderson
Going to hawaii was a great experience. We did lots of fun activities. One of my favorite things that we did, was snorkeling at Sharks Cove. After snorkeling we would usually go and get shaved ice. Hawaiian Shaved Ice is like a snow cone but way better. They put a scoop of ice cream in the bottom of the container before putting in the shaved ice and the flavoring. Also, the ice is shaved very thin so it soaks up lots of flavoring.
Another great activity was surfing. It is not as easy as it looks, but it is lots of fun. The only bad part was getting salt water in my eyes, nose and mouth. Ocean water stings the eyes and tastes nasty. My sisters were much better than me at surfing. Our instructor was so cool. He could walk all over the board and even turn around without falling off. He also would tow us out through the waves, so we didn't have to fight the surf.
I love to ride motorbikes. We have a track for dirt bikes and quads in our backyard. We have 8 motorbikes and 2 quads. In the winter, my sisters and I tie sleds to one of the quads. Then we drive around dragging each other and our friends in the sleds. It is so fun to swing out wide and fall off into the fluffy snow.
