The Solomon Islands (Boil and Fry)

By Conrad
We are in the  Solomon Islands right now. It is the hottest place in the world. It is a very nice country, and everybody is nice. We are here with our boat friends so we can play on the beach every day. We were here for Christmas, too! I got a Solomon Islands war club, a Solomon islands fishing float, and a chisel  set.

We went to a bunch of different islands, but I want to tell you about  the one that we are in. It is called Roderick Bay. There is a shipwreck of a boat called The World Explorer, a cruise boat. It hit a reef, so the owners drove it aground. When we approached the wreck, oil and diesel was still leaking out of the boat into the water! On New Year's eve, we had dinner with the locals. They were selling carvings, but for a holiday special, so I got a nice canoe carving. Mom and Dad got a fish bowl carving.
We went to Honiara, the capital of the Solomon islands, for a little bit, then we went back to Roderick Bay where we are now.
