This picture is a few years old, wish I was there now, but Im just tellin stories and sharing memories. Don

Steven Spielberg loves making movies in Kauai. The hurricane scene in the first Jurassic Park movies was actual hurricane footage filmed from the Marriot next to the airport. The state of Hawaii tried to confiscate it because they thought it would harm tourism.

The movie tour takes you to a bunch of locations. In this shot we are standing in front of what is left of the swinging doors that opened when the Jeeps entered Jurrasic Park for thier ill fated tour.

Its a cool and wierd feeling to watch a movie again when you have seen how they cut and paste it from so many locations. Just thought you might like to see some warmth while you wait for spring.

Blessings,

Don

When I read your thread title I thought you were going to say something about the PWA dinosaurs!

I agree, it makes all the difference to be in a place where a film is made or based. The film director works hard to draw the viewers in and feel that they are part of the film but having been on the set or in the area where the film is made you can feel even more involved in the story.

Love the misty mountain pic.

Aloha, Don.

I had no idea you were visiting the Islands. You've come at a great time, with a nice break from the consistent rainy, cloudy, blustery weather we've been having the last three months.

Enjoy your time. Any chance you'll ever be on Oahu?

Cheers,
Keith
