I’m having a good time in Hawaii. Let me tell you about three of my highlights.
1. A visit to the zoo was awesome. The lion exhibit woke everyone up with its huge roar but we didn’t get any good pictures of the lion because it was far away.
But the tiger was up close and awesome. The tiger was about 2cm away. The fence separated us. Our challenge was to figure out which of the three tigers it was.
2. Snorkeling was fun. I snorkel almost every day but one day we went on an awesome catamaran to Turtle Bay and there were 9 sea turtles just hanging out. It’s cool when they come up to get air. Then you get a really close look at them.
The best part of the trip was holding a live octopus under water. It felt sticky!
3. Diamond Head is an inactive volcano that you can climb. It says in guide books that the climb should take 30 to 40 minutes but it took me 18 minutes and 31 seconds. That was my third time climbing Diamond Head. Here’s a view from the top.
I wrote about different parts of my trip in the postcards to each of you. It took a while to finish them because I wrote a few a day. The problem has been mailing them. We will try again today with the US Postal Service express post. They said regular post would take two to six weeks. Then we went to UPS and they told us it would cost $80 to send!! Hopefully you will get them by Monday.
