My Summer In Hawaii Essay

847 words - 3 pages

Have you ever been to Hawaii? Well I have and it is such a beautiful island I enjoyed my hotel, which was in a city called Waikiki. I saw many tourists there by my hotel and while I was roaming the stores. Mostly the tourists were Vietnamese. Hawaii has a lot of ABC stores, every block, I saw one. Certain places that I went in Hawaii had the aroma of the ocean, which was also a beautiful view. When my dad took my family and I to go snorkeling at the beach down the street I was excited.

But in no time I was in there again catching the waves, although the pain from the board was still there. When our parents arrived to pick us up, my feet were burning from the hot sun steaming the sandWhen I was in Kona my family and I went parasailing. The guy that was steering the boat welcomed us by shaking our wet hands as we stepped in. My dad brought a camera and took pictures of my mom and my brother. My hands were shaking for an eternity when it was my turn to go next. I felt exited but then again scared. At least I had my sister to go...
