12 June 1996
A few weeks later I went back to Maui because my dad had a drifting
buoy stuck on the coast, near Haiku. Glenn James helped us. We walked
many miles through pineapples fields. We ate some small left over
pineapples which were sweet and tasted better than those in the
stores! we also brought some tiny ones back, dried them and gave them
to our dolls and stuffed animals.
We stopped on top of a clift and
searched for the buoys with a radio. We went down the clift in gulch with
a little trail. We saw a beach with big boulders and yellow net foam
floats. My dad and Glenn searched for the buoy. It was very hot and we
had forgotten to take anything to drink, so we sipped pineapples. There
was fishes, crabs, shells and opihi in a pool. Some of the crabs
we as big as one foot. They were red and black. I took
some pictures then it started raining
heavily, the rain was very cold. We left then it was sunny
again. We put black plastic bags in our necks and arms
to protect us because we had forgotten sunscreen. Then
we collected small pineapples, and back at Glenn's house
we made a juice that was very good. The recipe was: strawberries,
pineapples, blueberries, guavas, and a little coconut juice.
We put some aloa vera leaves on our sunburns, and took pictures
of Glenn's tropical garden before we left back to airport.
