Sea World, San Diego

Went on a trip to Sea World, San Diego last Saturday. We left a little after 7am and got there just past 9am as the park was opening. Good thing I bought our tickets online so we did not have to wait in line. Had breakfast there... good thing the servers were nice, if not I would certainly be pissed because the sausage took too long to cook... have no fear, coffee is here :p

Saw the star of Sea World, Shamu. Ended up buying a big stuff toy of him, Kyla got smaller versions of almost all the animals we saw there, and Axel got a Manatee.

Got Nanay to ride the Sky Ride, got somewhat wet from all the shows(they don't call it Sea World for nothing... you will get wet!). Was not able to ride Journey to Atlantis because my back started hurting towards the end of the day. Kyla rode it, then she and Axel rode the Shipwreck Rapids. We even got to see the night show Shamu Rocks. It's really amazing how these sea creatures can be trained. Did not ride Wild Arctic because the lines were soooo loooong, but we did a walk-through (you'll see the same things, anyway) and got to see the creatures close-up. Kyla and Axel went rock climbing (did not make it all the way to the top...shhhh) since Kyla has been wanting to do it for a long time.

Alas! the day has to end. Still had to drive back to LA (2 hours, less of course since I'm driving). Wanted to stop by Denny's for dinner, but got lost trying to find the right side street. Ended up at a McDonald's near the apartment since all of us are poofed. Good thing we did not have to wake up early the next day.

pics later...

Hi Maria. Glad you had a terrific time at Sea World. I would love to see your pictures later on.

In the Philippines, we have Ocean Adventure in Subic but we've never been there before. My son loves animals and I hope we'll have the chance to go there soon.

Thanks for sharing your fun-filled day. Glad everyone had a nice time and how thoughtful of you to buy your children so many stuffed animals. :)

Thanks for dropping by earlier.
