Fun At Sea World

Since my husband is on vacation this week we wanted to do some things (other than look for houses to buy) so we decided on Sea World today after our son got out of preschool.

It was the deadest we have seen it since Spring Break. We got Silver Passes last November on our honeymoon and I used to love going over the winter and into the early spring. But once Spring Break hit, it was crazy, not to mention hot.

Today was cloudy and it did rain a little, but not so much as to spoil our fun. And for the first time ever my son crawled into the water tubes they have in Happy Harbor. For 10 months now he has only stood on the outside and even with coaxing from us (I have even gone so far as to go in) he would not go inside. Today, without ANY coaxing, he decided to go. We were quite pleased.

The penguins were in rare form also, doing these amazing dives, flying up out of the water and then diving back in. There were about 20 of them going back and forth doing this over and over. We had to ride through twice because it was such a spectacle.

And as usual, the polar bears were sleeping(has anyone EVER seen them awake?). But we did get an up close encounter with a HUGE walrus. Mikey thought that was hysterical.

    Hey! Great to hear you and the fam had a wonderful time. I havent been to SeaWorld since I could fit in one of those dolphin strollers. Do they still have those even?? Take care.

    No, not anymore and that’s kind of a shame. They were so cute.
