On the 5th day of the island hoping cruise the ship landed at Lihu'e, Kauai... the garden island. We were already assembled as the ship landed and we were immediately loaded on the tour bus for a 7 hour excursion with the... Kauai 3 Alii Movie Tour - Polynesian Adventure Tours on Kauai


The incomplete list of the films on the website is impressive.

We would be visiting the areas where movies (and TV shows) have been made.

We were shown clips of movies and then we'd visit the location. Our driver/tour director was entertaining and very knowledgeable about the locations, the trees and flowers along the way. Who owned what properties... who previously owned them... who tried to run over the local zoning boards, stuff like that.

I signed up for this tour to be with my wife... turns out I enjoyed it too!

Some of the roads would have been hard to find if you weren't on the tour... our minds wnet into over drive... "excellent boondocking spots"... just ahead... Donavans Reef.

[image]

There is King Kong... far, far in the back ground... as seen from this site of Donovans Reef (1963, John Wayne, Lee Marvin)

[image]

Next: Jurassic Park

[image]

....it looks different today... we were there

[image]

looking for a good picture

a good photographer would work around the trash cans...

or stay out of someone elses pictures

Some seats on the bus aren't as good as others for seeing down the road

We had lunch at this point... and a short walk along the beach. For the first time it occured to me that... we be back on the road in just another 5 or 6 days... time was flying!

We carry a few DVDs in our camper... just in case we need entertainment... some of these old goodies might be fun to look at again.

Blue Hawaii (1961 Elvis Presley)

[image]

Some of the scenes were at Diamond Head.

The buildings from the movie are victims of storm damage... and zoning laws...
