Shave Ice

Happy May Day to you! Yesterday was a wonderful day~first I had lunch with Val at this little restaurant and had the best fish tacos I've ever had! We had such a good visit, wish I had more time to hang out with this neat friend. Then in the afternoon, we took our friends down the road a bit to Jo Jo's Shave Ice; it was well worth the drive. Will you look at this concoction. It was the perfect size for one person, but I will admit that I was full when we left. We each had a different flavor and it was fun to see what we all got.

We have been going to Jo Jo's for eight years now; this year there were major changes to the place.  In years past, the door was made of plywood and the interior looked like something from Woodstock or the 60's in the Haight Ashbury.  It has been painted inside and out, was cleared of all the tie dye and t-shirts and looked so big and clean.  Seriously, in the past we would always joke that it looked like a hippie place.  I immediately asked if it had been sold and it hasn't; the owner just got a partner.  The quality was the same incredible shave ice; in fact, it was smoother than the one we got in Kapaa. It was packed as well and when we were driving off, there was a line out the door.
Hubby and I needed a new photo for here and Facebook-so here it is.  I love it!

Today, we will be doing laundry, packing, getting food for the flights-by the time we land in Seattle, everything will be closed and we want to have dinner and snacks ready. 
I hope you have a great day today.  I am not sure whether I will post tomorrow and hopefully can share more photos next week.
