Shave Ice

Koloa, the small town near where we are staying, has a great Shave Ice place.
In case you haven't heard, Hawaiian shave-ice is a great favorite of President Obama, a reminder of his childhood and youth in Honolulu. We decided to have some this afternoon.

The shave-ice machine.
A shave-ice machine shaves the ice block into a sort of snow, which the operator forms into a snow-ball. It's soft not crunchy -- and therefore nothing like the Sno-Cones of our childhood!
Adding syrup to the shave-ice.

Left: Len's Blue Hawaiian -- shave ice over crushed pineapple and vanilla ice cream with blue vanilla syrup.
Right: my passion-fruit and blue vanilla shave ice without ice cream.
In 2007 on the Big Island Alice tried shave ice.
