The Cottage – Pahoa, Puna District of The Big Island (Hilo side).

Aloha!

Today I met 2 other Artists – Karen Mortenson and Arenzo Smith at Karen’s home in Pahoa not far from the cottage I am staying at.Karen’s home is so amazing because it is filled with all the art she has created.

Karen will be coming over to where I am staying to take care of the chickens there. So I will be able to interact with her more and of course ask her permission to take photo’s of her home,

hopefully she says yes! Below I have included links to both Arenzo’s and Karen’s websites please take a look.

I also snapped some quick shots of the exterior of the cottage and of course ‘Simon’ the resident cat who lives here – he’s such a friendly cat! Also check out Hilo’s famous Green Papaya Salad at Pahoa Farmers market on Sundays. Seriously I’ve been to Thailand and you can never get it that good!

Cooking in the electric skillet at the cottage, not bad – Eloenia and I almost ‘broke da’ mouf ‘ as we “grind da ono” taco’s. Hey, I could get hooked on electric frying pans.

  1. very beautiful Andi 🙂 Me and cruzy were looking at your photos and were “wishing we were there”..
    Cruzy wanted to let you know that he loves you and he misses you. He also had a parting statement “Dinosaur!!”

    • Mahalo! I really miss the family and especially baby Cruz, I always have his photo with me and it makes me smile! I can’t wait to get back and give him a great big hug, an even bigger smooch on his chubby cheeks and to tell him how much I love him too! xox
