Buddy and Sonia in Hawaii - 2012
Buddy and Sonia in Hawaii
My family and I went to Kauai, which is one of the islands of Hawaii. We took Buddy Bison on a helicopter ride to a waterfall called Manawaiopuna. We had to wear blue cover-up shoes and life jackets for safety when we were in the helicopter. Buddy learned that when it rained a lot at Manawaiopuna it created floods. Did you know that the fall’s water was only rainwater and that it rained the most in Kauai than anywhere else in the world? When Buddy Bison was at the waterfall, he was plugging his ears because the fall sounded so loud; it sounded like turning a big rain-stick real fast. Buddy also saw lots of cool plants around the island. He loved the bobo tree.
