Friday's Fotos: Location, Location and Location

When we were driving to see the place where the lava from Kīlauea meets the ocean, we drove an a funky road through the lava fields from previous eruptions starting out in the late 1950's.  And before the volcano woke up, the house in this picture was part of a chic and trendy little ocean side community. 

My some miracle, a few of the houses stood up to the molten rock and didn't burn to the ground.  Still almost all of the residents of this community gave it up and moved.  There was one holdout, however, who stayed behind.  The path of the lava flow has moved south of there this house stands, but the volcano goddess could change that on a whim!

So this has got to be the most buyer-specific house I could possibly imagine!  And if the owner did decide to sell, do you think Bank of American would do the mortgage?  Do you think State Farm would provide homeowners/ coverage?

On the plus side, you wouldn't have to hire the kid down the street to mow your lawn.  And it is an easy walk to the ocean, although walking over solidified lava flows can be pretty awkward, especially if you've been imbibing in any of those drinks with parasols and coonut rum and pineapple juice!
