Winner winner chicken dinner. Yesterday was our last day of sailing. I know it's so sad but I'm happy I got to learn something new that I actually like. In the water we rigged our Bics and set out. Curtis let us go past the reef and start racing at the moored sailboats. The races I enjoyed the most were the last two races because David and I were going head to head. On the second to last race I got a good start and I was in first place but I didn't know where I was going so I looked back to see where everybody was pointed. David and Carter were pointing on the top of the boat but then they switched and I got so mad but I was a close second. We had pizza and salad for lunch then went back out with partners and we got to do whatever we want and it was a blaset Thank you Lahiana Yacht Club for the best five weeks every.
On September 18, 2013 we went sailing at the Lahaina Yacht Club. This was my first time sailing and I was very excited. When we began Summer was my partner and it was great. At first I didn't know what to do but Summer helped me and I got to go on a Bic by myself. The hardest part of sailing was tacking. I always got stuck and had to get help. The lunch was so delicious, we had spaghetti. Overall, I have a great time and can't wait for next week.
On Friday Oct. 17, 2013 The 8th and 7th grade classes went to Honokowai Valley. Nicole, Summer, James and I didn't go because we had to leave early or didn't turn our permission slip on time. I didn't go because last time I went there I had a bad experience. So instead Nicole and I went to 5th grade. We had a great time and we also got to go to the library but it was closed so I got as single scoop of delicious chocolate. Later, Nicole and I went to the library to ask if there were any books about smoking ads. There was a book on how to create an ad.
What can you do with recycle wood and windows? Wes Bruce designed a wonderful structure. This installation was built in one month. Wes used recycled wood and window from Maui and designed a wonderful piece of art. When you look right at the building it look like its just a hallway that had pictures on the wall, but when you go inside of this structure, you get the sensation of curiosity. The area I enjoyed the most was the hidden room under the bed. It was fun to go inside of the hidden room but there was many students inside at once. Another thing I enjoyed was the appearance. After we got finish exploring the whole house we went to the art room and build our own little room. We spent an half of an hour on that then we put all the room together. Overall I had a wonderful time and want to go back before they remove it from the MACC.
Yesterday was our second day sailing. In the beginning it was boring because there was no wind. After lunch I got to go in a Bic and the wind was great. The waves were huge and it was difficult to sail because I was getting knocked back and forth. I went faster than everybody but every time I tacked I either got capsized or stuck in the no go zone. Mike asked me to join junior sailing during the summer. My answer was yes. Overall I had a great experience and I cant wait for next time.
