Me and a whale... resemblance?
Tim and a whale. Less resemblance.
Dun dun... dun dun.... dun dun dun dun dun dun!!!
Shamu posing. The show was really cool, but it was even cooler after the show when we went to the Shamu viewing area and happened to arrive during a training session. We were able to watch all of the tricks from both the underwater viewing tank, and from above and close range.
The sea lion show was cute.
There was a dolphin show too.
This was when we were watching the sea lions in their habitat. There was a stand where people could buy small fish to feed the sea lions, and this guy had himself posed on a rock waiting for some fish.
At first I was impressed and thought he was pretty smart displaying himself like that. Then we heard a ruckus coming from the next habitat over, where we saw several more sea lions begging, but these were howling and screaming for food as well.
Then there was this guy, who brought begging to a whole new level. The picture gives a good view of how pathetic he was.
But the video is better:
These birds kept swooping in and grabbing the fish right out of people's hands.
Sea world was more relaxing than the zoo. The area to walk around was a lot smaller, and there weren't as many small displays of things I wasn't all that interested in seeing, like all of the birds all over the zoo.
We picked up the dogs and were able to make it to the beach before dark this time, but I'll put all of the beach pictures together in the next post.
