When we reached Abe plantation my attention was soon caught by the house full of different flowers. The house is very beautiful under the sunshine and I thought the house owner must love their life!


When we met Mr. and Mrs. Abe, it made me much more sure about this. They were very kind and full of smiles. They let us eat the watermelon from their plantation and told us they have travelled to almost 35 countries. They enjoyed their lives and still want to go more places to experience more! Even though they looked old their attitude towards life really impressed me.


Mr. Abe showed us his plantation and we harvested the watermelons there. It was an  interesting experience  to harvest watermelons!
