This is actually my fifth trip to Hawaii and my fourth to Kauai.Known as the Garden Island, Kauai is the northern most of the main Hawaiian Islands. Most would agree it is the prettiest and least commercialized. Most of the movies that use Hawaii as a backdrop film on Kauai. It is just a little prettier and more prestine.

Some of the more famous famous filmed here:

  • South Pacific, Blue Hawaii, King Kong ('76), Raiders of the Lost Arc, The Thorn Birds, Hook, all the Jurassic Park movies, Six Days Seven Nights and George of the Jungle.

    We stayed for 10 days in a condo in Poipu which is on the southern tip of the island. My father was there for about three weeks.

    We met a family from Anchorage - Hutton & Wendy and their two daughters Danika and Quincy. We hit it off really well together. Hopefully we can R&R together again somwhere, sometime.

    Of course I brought all the camera equipment since Kauai is hard to beat for picture taking. Yup, even brought the tripod to take sunset pictures (I've put my favorites here).

    Weather was great the first half of the trip, but cloudy and windy (really windy one day!) the second half. Fine with me actually.
