Dave’s Cook Island bowls tour blog – Day 3
Day 3 – May, 18
Once again feeling refreshed and invigorated by the refreshingly slow pace of island living we took a trip down to visit a local school, this gave us all an opportunity to learn about the culture which is passed down from generation to generation.
It truly is a noble culture and after our visit we were all well aware it will never die.
Our visit to the school afforded us the chance to learn how to make our own headwear from flowers and the boys showed us all how to extract the delectable raw coconut from its shell while we listened to more native music and drums.
The children were never without a smile on their faces and the respect they showed for the teachers and our group was lovely to see.
As the afternoon rolled around and it was into serious competition mode.
We headed to the bowls club and set ourselves into teams of four, mixed up with the locals.
Much fun was had.
Some bowls went close and some didn’t but it didn’t really matter as the laughs across the green were well heard.
We finished with a few bevvies and more laughter.
