When I was a little kid I used to live in Hawaii. We lived on the island Ohau and in the city Wahiawa. My family and I lived there because my dad was stationed there for the Army. We lived on base in a small neighborhood named Willi Willi Circle. We lived in a two story town home, two or more houses connected.
We would go to the beach a lot. We would go hiking sometimes too, once you get to the top of the mountain you could see everything. It was so beautiful. I remember one time we were hiking and we found a big boulder, there was a perfect indention in the rock to fit a head and more of an indention for a body. I layed on the boulder and my body could fit the indentions. There was also carves in the rock where blood or other liquid could fall off the rock. We concluded that it was used for sacrifice or something similar. Another time we went hiking we found a place where there were a lot of rocks and boulders put together were people could have ceremonies and shows a long time ago.
We would go snorkeling sometimes and we would see a bunch of fish. Some of the fish were amazing and beautiful. I think one time we actually saw the state fish, it is called a Humuhumunukunukuapuaa. Other fish we saw looked similar to Nemo and Dory. One time my dad found a fish trapped in a small puddle so he picked it up and set it down in the pool we were snorkeling in.
We flew over to the big island and stayed there for a week. While we were there we took tours to the volcanoes. Only one was still alive but it wasn't erupting. The dried lava looked like black concrete. We were walking around the dried lava and saw a sign in it that read do not park here. This was ironic because you couldn't park there anyways, you couldn't get your car on the lava.
We did a lot of other stuff while we lived in Hawaii but I don't remember it because I was little. You should go there sometime, it was amazing.
