We woke up very early today to get ready to go to Kipu Ranch Adventures ATV tour. We were doing it with Daniel’s Aunt Jackie and Uncle Peter, Gretchen and Eric, Kevin and Charlotte, Robbie, and Shane. The ranch formerly belonged to Princess Ruth, Kamehameha’s granddaughter. She sold it to the Rice family, which still owns it. Several movies have been filmed there, including Jurassic Park and Indiana Jones. It has served as several other places for movies, including Africa, Costa Rica, and Vietnam.

Daniel drove for most of it.

But Catherine also drove for a bit.

Tree tunnels in Hawaii are designations of royal lands. There is a famous one outside Poipu and Koloa made of eucalyptus. This one, designating Princess Ruth’s lands, was made of pine.

We saw such beautiful views as we drove through the ranch.

The swimming holes were too muddy for us to swim.

We walked to a waterfall and were able to go behind it. Again, the water was too muddy to swim.

We had lunch at tables near the waterfall. There were a lot of chickens nearby who scavenged for food there.

Next we drove to another waterfall.

There was a great deal of bamboo around the waterfall, giving us our title for today’s entry.

This pool was clean enough to swim in according to the guides, but it didn’t seem too pleasant so we didn’t decide to swim.

When we got back we rested for a while, then went to Costco and Safeway to get ready for our party. We went with Daniel’s mom and bought all the supplies we will need.

Daniel’s mom found a ukulele at Costco. We didn’t buy one but she did play it for a moment.

When we got home we went to dinner with Daniel’s sister Hilary. It was a very fun dinner at Brennecke’s, and are looking forward to our party tomorrow!
