the great coconut adventure

This day, we walked a few blocks down the road to the find the beach!
After a few hours and 10yr old Tongan boy named John jumped out of the bushes and sat with us. We visited for a bit. Then I walked over to the coconut tree, determined to climb it. However, John beat me to it.

yep he's scaling up the tree.

Next he showed us how to beat the green coconuts on the rock and crack it open to reveal the brown coconut we see in the stores.

then he gave us a sharp stick to puncture a hole in the coconut. We drank the milk and enjoyed the rest of our day!

Chris drank his fast and we opened it up to eat the fresh coconut.

The pigs came round and ate up our bits left behind.
