We decided we should go to the grocery store and pick up some supplies for the hurricanes that were on the way, just in case.

I tried it at Marriot Grand Wailea. Very refreshing after a paddlebord session. I went to several Shave Ice places, but this one I liked the most.

We just did a little grocery shopping next door at Foodland. When we were walking back to our rental house we stopped by and got to small shave ice. It was a typical shave ice nothing special. Not bad on a hot day!

A great novelette with all the different syrup flavours. The service was slow due to computer problems.

The shaved ice was chunkier than I expected. The syrup tasted artificial and with combination of red beans, it was too sweet for me. Won't go back there.
