    Throughout the decriptions, I'll mention islands. Since some people do not 
    know where these islands are, I have made an ASCII map of the ocean below.
    When you see something like "Dragon Roost Island (F2)", go to the square 
    on the map where F and 2 meet.

                 On the second floor of the big mail center on the island, talk 
    to the guy behind the counter. You will be given the opportunity to help him
    work. If you accept, you will be required to sort letters you are given. To 
    do this, highlight the box that matches the symbol of the letter. Then toss 
    it in. The faster you sort, the more you get payed. Keep going and going 
    until the post guy asks you to mail a letter for him. Do so and a day later, 
    you will get a letter from the mail guy.

    and agree to play his game. What you have to do is shoot him with the bow as he
    jumps in the air and back into the water. Everytime you hit him (using only 10

    will win 200 rupees.

    this: Talk to the pink haired teacher lady on Windfall Island. She will say 
    something about five kids. Exit the school and talk to the kids until they want 
    to play hide and go seek. Play it with them. After finding all five, talk to 
    the teacher again. Then come out of the school. After a talk with the kids 
    again, go back in the school and give 20 Joy Pendants (The Butterfly necklaces)
    to get the Cabana Deed. 
      Now sail to the square south of the Tower of The Gods. Now walk
    up to the house and show the Cabana Deed to the door. That's right, show a 
    piece of paper to a wooden door. You will now be allowed to enter the house. 
    Walk to the wall with a picture on it. Now go to the wall opposite of it. 
    There should be a messed up looking panting. Press A in front of it and try 
    to make the puzzle look like the picture on the opposite wall. Everytime you
    complete a puzzle, you get 50 rupees. It's a good money maker and its 
    pretty fun, but the puzzles are pretty hard.

    the hidden ship. Once you've run out of bombs or hit all ships, the game
    is over.

       The object of this mini game is to fly across the ocen to the big banner. 
    In order to do this though, you must fly into the little air spirals, to give
    you more lift. More lift=more distance covered faster. 
       If you can get to the banner, you will be given a heart piece. And doesn't

    Description: Go to the Boating Course (F7). Here you can race against the 
    clock to collect a bunch of Rupees (which you can keep). The Rupees appear
    on barrels floating in the water. For some of the barrels you have to jump over
    them to reach the Rupees (Just hit R to jump). The rest you just run over to
    collect the Rupees.
       Everytime you complete it (collect all the rupees) the time limit you are 
    given is reduced by 10 seconds. As long as you are fast, you can keep on 
    going for a long time collecting a ton of Rupees.

    Location:      Windfall Island (D2)
    Required:      NOTHING 
    Fun Rating:    3/5
    Description:   This is really part of getting the Cabana Deed, but its really
    a mini-game on its own. Go to the school house (more like room, but whatever) 
    and talk to the teacher (Pink haired lady). She will mention five racals that
    have been skipping school and other bad stuff. So head outside of the school
    house and talk to the boys. They wil challange you to a nice game of 
    hide-and-go-seek. Fun! By the way, these boys are known as the Killer Bees.
    Scary huh? Anyway, look all around the island for the boys. Look in trees, 
    hidden paths, behind the bomb shop, and other odd places.
