Sea World 2008 Pictures

Waiting for the Shamu Show to begin.

The Show:

After the show with one of the trainers. This show affected Pooh powerfully. He was very emotional when it was done. He even shed a few tears. I think it was a combination of the story presented (of a young boy who grew up to work with whales at Sea World) and his own love of anything related to the ocean.

Feeding the dolphins. If you want to do this, show up extra early and make a beeline for the feeding area. Otherwise, you'll be waiting in a very long line.

Flamingo Parade: This was hilarious. They had a flock of flamingos with their trainers? coming through one of the main paths that the tourists walk on. They were just calmly walking along. It's the closest I've ever been to one of these birds. The kids thought it was great!

When we went to Sea World we sat in the "get wet" section. hehehe The boys got under their seats when the water came at them. Fun times!

They got to pet a dolphin!!! How awesome! I bet that was a moment ripe for declarative language and building warm episodic memory.

How does the skin of a dolphin feel?????

Tammy, Yes, the dolphin petting was phenomenal. Although, the catch is that you have to buy the little fish to feed them. LOL

They feel like a wet rubber suit. Very smooth and cool.

One day I would love to swim with the dolphins.
