Subject: Shave ice run; pool #5
On way back to his house in Kailua, POTUS took a stop at Island Snow,
a Hawaiian shave ice establishment that is part of the first family's
holiday traditions. The shop has a flavor, Snowbama, a mixture of
flavours that seems to call to the rainbow theme that became a symbol
for this presidency in the wake of the Supreme Court decision
legalising same-sex marriage. The flavour is a combination of lemon,
lime, cherry and passion-guava.
POTUS was accompanied by his daughters. FLOTUS was not present, as she
rarely seems to enjoy publicly eating frozen garishly colored sugar
water with little of the mouth appeal that cream brings.
A crowd of about 40 people lined the walkway next to Island Snow just
outside of San Lorenzo Bikinis and Bob's Pizzeria.
