Since we were down in San Diego, we thought we'd spend the day at Sea World, which we haven't been to in at least five years. There was lots of new stuff that wasn't there the last time we came, like Cirque de la Mer, R.L. Stine's Haunted Lighthouse 4-D, Shipwreck Rapids (on which we got SOAKED), and Journey to Atlantis, a sort of water flume and roller coaster in one. In addition, we also paid the extra five bucks to ride the Bayside Skyride and the Skytower, which we didn't do last time.
Rather than write a lengthy description of everything we did, I thought I'd just post some of the pictures we took:
Here we are at Sea World ... our first time there in at least five years. (08/07/05)
One of the killer whales from the Shamu Experience shows us a few tricks. (08/07/05)
