Sea World has changed in the decade since I last saw it in California. The dolphin show used to have more dolphin tricks, but now it has more trainer/acrobat tricks/dancing. And lots of "save the world" propaganda everywhere. But it was still fun to watch the dolphin tricks they still performed.
Unfortunately, we sat in the splash zone at the Shamu show, and the announcer kept saying how wet we were going to get. I put my camera in a plastic bag to be safe, so I didn't get any good pictures of Shamu, they were all blurry and foggy from inside a sandwich bag. And...we didn't even get wet at all.
The shark tunnel is one of my favorite things at Sea World. Too bad my camera takes bad indoor pictures.
We didn't actually see live penguins -- for some reason the penguin place always had a huge hour or more wait, and we came back several times to see if the line had died down, but it never did. Must have been an amazing place for that many people to stand in line all day long.
So we left the park and ate our fancy anniversary dinner at Wendy's, and then headed home. It was a fun way to spend our anniversary with our family, and have one last big adventure before moving. Now...on to packing.
