For my Moms 70th birthday she rented a house on the South Kona coast on the Big Island of Hawaii. overlooking Captain Cooks Cove .

The getting to Hawaii is not nearly as much fun as the being there part.  It was a long flight, but you forget pretty quickly once you get a good night’s sleep.  I thought since I was already going to be in Hawaii I would mix a little business with pleasure.  I had been researching Kona artists on the Internet and couldn’t find anyone decent.  There was as usual, a lot of cheesy touristy art.  It really seemed like South Kona should have been a natural place for an artist to make a nice living..  There were plenty of tourist eager to separate themselves from their cash for a beautiful piece of art.  I think I am going to write a post about all the places I have gone where there was no decent art to buy. …. another day.  I digress

 After a few days of settling in, my niece Katie and I went exploring on foot.  But what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a Hawaiian artist peddling right here.  My next post on Hawaii will be a short video of our discovery.  This was not what I was looking for, but all the same I think it was pretty cool.
