ABACO!!!!

Day 1
I am finally here to tell you about my trip! When we went to the airport I forgot my carry on, so we had to go back for it, But even if I hadn't forgot it, the traffic was awful! Then we had to (or at least that's what the adults said) carry a hitchhiking man who needed to go to the air port, but Ali and I think they just wanted directions, because they kept asking them which was the best way to go. When we finally got to the airport everyone was there, and we ended up waiting for someone who never came.

I finally got to sit and read when we got on the plane. When we got there it was awesome. We unpacked, then explored the hotel. After we settled in Mr. Spencer said we were going on a treasure hunt, which turned out to be a test and a ten mile walk. Luckily my group won the test, and we each got our choice of a free shirt! Yay! We went on the beach at our hotel and found some shark snot! YUCK! The boys even touched it, they said it felt like those sticky hand strings you get at the grocery store in the balls for 25 cents. We also went to Schooner bay and learned about invasive species and sand dune dimineshment.



We had a great dinner w/ chicken and ribs at a very nice person's house.


Day 2

We had to wake up at 6:30!!! The french toast we had for breakfast was great! We went on the ferry to Green turtle cay, and someone dropped their camera. But it was pouring rain, so our awesome chaperon let us rent a golf cart if we all donated a dollar. I had to sit on someones lap so we would all fit, and we laughed at everybody else in the rain! Luckily, it wasn't raining on the mainland and the blue hole was dry. Mr. Spencer threw me in, but Serena and Claire chickened out. Did you know the the first 30 ft. of the blue hole is fresh water, and the rest is salt water?.The next thing we did was go to Treasure cay beach and play volleyball and swim. We saw this weird fish that looked like a stingray that sent us screaming out of the water. Then we played moonlight capture the flag. It was awesome!!!




Day 3

This time we woke up at 6:00!!!!! We played Red rover, where you all hold hands and say Red rover Red rover let so and so come over. Man, it hurts! Then Chase tried to get me and Spencer to hold hands because she knows that I like him, which was embarrassing. Then we went on the ferry to Hope Town, which was alot like Harbour Island. We went to the school there to play kickball, and we won 21 to 12! Next, we went kayaking to the lighthouse, which was easy on the way there. We walked up 101 steps to the light house, I counted. Going back was soooooooo hard because we had to go against a very strong current. When we were walking back, a bird dropped suddenly from a telephone wire almost on Clarie's head and died. Mr. Spencer had to pick him up by his tail and throw him away. It was creepy!!! Then we got back and played Dead or Alive with the football, it's fun if the boys aren't playing. Then we practised for the Talent show.






Day 4

Today was the most fun ever!!!!!!! We went on the ferry to go to little harbor, and the ride was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! First , the driver made it wavy for us so we were trying to stay up, we surfed on board!!! Then we sang BINGO, then Hockie-Pockie, then If your happy and you know it! It was fun! First, we went to the bat caves. It was scary and fun. You had to walk up a thin plank of wood and if you screamed or shone the light up the bats would fly around. Next, we went to the Bronze Foundation. Then we had a club sandwich w/ cookies, chips, crackers, and fruit. Next, we got on the boat to go to Mermaid reef. I slept the whole way. I wish I had an underwater camera, Mermaid reef was amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The parrot fish were beautiful, and I saw a HUGE Grouper!!! The Talent show was really fun, ever one thought our skit was funny. Hydie sang a poem!!! It was great!!!












Day 5

It is now the last day. All we did was pack and go souvenir shopping. It was fun though!
The plane was fun too. I sat w/ Angelique and we played UNO and chewed gum! Then when I got of the plane, Stephanie was there...YYYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Abaco was fun, I wish we could do it all over again! Bye!

Harbour Island

We took a vacation from vacation. Since our life is like a vacation, but a busy vacation. We decided to go somewhere else and relax. So we went to Harbour Island, a place where you drive golf carts instead of cars and never, ever wear shoes, even to drive! A place where you can stand up while driving, where kids can go to the store and even to a restaurant by themselves, and you never where a seat belt or drive slowly. No highways, no traffic lights, no security, no tolls. I don't even think they have an airport, only boats and ferries. This is why this was a perfect vacation. We went with Claire, Ali, Victoria, and her parents. Here's some pics.













See? Looks fun, huh? WELL IT WAS!!!!! I want to go there eeeeeeeeeeevvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeerrrrrrrryyyyyyyyyy vacation! It was AWESOME!!!
See ya'!

Puppy saving!

If you think I had a normal weekend, you are WRONG!!! W-R-O-N-G!!! Here is a story for you. Once upon a time, a girl named Emily was walking home from the park with a girl named Claire. Suddenly, "Awwwww! Claire, look!" exclaimed Emily in a high voice. "Oh my gosh!", said Claire "The poor things!". A small, mangy puppy walked up to Emily, she picked it up. "Do you think we should bring it home?", said Claire. Then, more puppys ran into a bush and went through. Emily handed the puppy to her friend and followed them. It widened out into a big open space with a small, dirty pond and a rotten fridge with no doors. That space contained about eight more abandoned puppys. Emily crawled back to Claire. They walked home, bringing with them the small,mangy puppy and bathed him. Treating to his fleas. They went back to the bushes and found two more puppys. They bathed them ,too. They went back for the final time. Now beginning a puppy chase. they followed two puppys through a dense thicket for about half a mile. Fortunately not hurting themselves. At last the puppy chase was over as they came to a wire gate. The puppys had to turn around. But since it was getting dark and they could barely see, they only got one of the puppys. "Now that poor puppy is in danger!" said Claire."I know," said Emily "But it's getting dark and I can barely see the puppy I'm holding. We might step on one. We will have to come tomorrow." The next day they went to look for more, but all they found was puppy skulls. "Oh, well, we did our best." said Emily.

Now that is a true story!
Oh come on! Believe me!!!
Here are some pictures...
Here is the one we named Fluffy...

Here is Mangy...His name is a bit obvious...

This is Butterscotch...

This is all four of them...the one next to Claire is Spunky.

The story ends with Butterscotch and Mangy finding nice homes in heaven, and Fluffy and Spunky living happily ever after.
