Aloha from Kauai, Hawaii. Last year, we went to the Big Island, Hawaii, but this year we are in Kauai. Today, we explored the south part of the island. We went snorkeling in Poipu Beach. Kauai is very green and on the way to Poipu Beach we saw thick, tall, green vine type trees. We also saw many tall flat top trees called Acacia trees. We noticed many different shades of green in the forest, going from light yellow-green grass, green trees, and finally dark green trees. There were many cows grazing on the green grass and also roosters, chickens, and baby chicks waddling and eating the grains from the grass. It was my first time seeing real roosters, chickens, and baby chicks!
When we arrived on the beach it was raining warm rain. We waited until the rain stopped, and then we headed out to the beach. We put on our snorkels and fins and then went into the water. The fish in the water were the prettiest that I have ever seen. There were huge rainbow fish, striped fish, and other different color and types of fish. Check out my last years Hawaiipost that has a page of a book with the types of fish we saw. A Hawaii local gave us a tip that the fish love frozen peas. My mom gave us a few to feed the fish while snorkeling. The fish would swarm around us to and nibble the pea out of our fingers. Poipu Snorkeling Beach was a lot of fun!
In the afternoon, after the snorkeling we went to Spouting Horn. Spouting Horn is lava rock with holes inside it. When an ocean wave hits the rock and water comes in the holes of the lava rock, the water inside the hole spouts out like a whale. It was very interesting and wet!
After Spouting Horn, we went to the Farmers Market. Visit Come Somersault with Sarah to find out more about all of theinteresting fruit we saw!
