With clouds covering the golf courses on the Windward side today, President Barack Obama chose to spend part of the afternoon bowling and eating shave ice with his daughters.
A motorcade that included Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia left the president’s Kailuana Place vacation compound at about 1:40 p.m. and arrived at Marine Corps Base Hawaii in Kaneohe about six minutes later, a pool report said.
The entourage left the Marine Corps base about about two hours later and went for shave ice at Island Snow at the Kailua Beach Center.
A stop for the presidential entourage during previous visits, the first family entered the shop with several family friends, the pool report said.
Obama emerged a few minutes later with a green-and-red colored shave ice. Dressed in an untucked navy polo shirt and jeans, Obama greeted a small crowd that had gathered quickly outside.
Obama spent several minutes shaking hands and asking “How are you doing?”
The entourage then hopped back into their vehicles and returned back to Kailuana about 4:15, the pool report said.
