I assumed it was a snow cone. I was wrong. It actually takes some time to make too which was wonderful. It allowed us to chat to the super friendly "local" girl. It turns out our local girl is from Richmond, Va. Henrico, Va. to be exact. She is just another of the many interesting people you meet on Maui who are living life according to their own rules. Before Maui, she spent time in Louisiana and she is planning a trip further south in the Pacific to a chain of 38 islands.
On her off time she scuba dives around Maui. Kristin, who is deathly afraid of sharks, asked if she had seen any. Apparently two live in a cove off the coast just north of Lahaina, but they were smaller and not a serious threat.
She did mention she had been diving today in murky water and had concerns about a Tiger Shark attack. "At your current distance from me, I would have struggled to see you," she said, "the visibility was so bad." Just the conditions sharks enjoy for hunting. "But", she continued, "I was fine" and moved her elbows out away from her body while waving her hands around her torso to emphasize that she was still intact. No gaping hole to be found. I don't think Kristin felt better, but I sure liked her gusto.
Tiger Sharks average between 10-to15-feet so I can see her concern.
