San Diego Day Four - Sea World

We woke up feeling refreshed and upon opening our suitcases and being confronted with the smell of sewage that had somehow seeped into everything we owned during our two nights at the cabin we again were reassured that we had made the right decision to cut our losses and move to La Quinta. Also Tim hadn't felt the urge to sleep with a butcher knife tucked under the mattress like he had at the cabin, which further reassured us the choice was the right one. We dropped the dogs off at doggie daycare and headed out to Sea World.

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.

  1. We took our kids to Sea World when they were little and it was a lot of fun for all of us. Much more navigable than the zoo.

  2. Sea World is such a fun place. Glad the vacation finally took a positive turn. Whale resemblance? Only slight, and such a cute little whale you are!

  3. lol yeah I think it's a bit of a stretch to be comparing yourself to a whale just yet. That first sea lion looks like some sort of noble statue. I'd feed him for sure.

  4. I'm SO JEALOUS! I haven't been to Sea World since I was a little girl and it looks like you guys had such a great time. I agree with Laura, the whale comparison is a bit much. However, I'd be lying if I didn't admit to feeling like a beached whale from time to time. Though, I never thought I resembled one. LOL! And neither do you! You look great! :)
