About halfway through the day, were caught in an infamous Florida rain storm. It lasted exactly long enough for us to dash into a gift shop & buy rain ponchos big enough to cover Shamu himself :) (And Florida rain is a far cry from Washington rain!)
Clyde & Seamore take Pirate Island!
I wanted to have my picture taken with him...
but had to settle for this guy instead :)
Touching the stingrays at Stingray Lagoon was one of my very favorite parts of the day. About 200 swim around & around a shallow pool, and you can reach out and pet them as they glide by.
SeaWorld's website describes it as getting a velvety high five, and it's true!
At the Pacific Point Preserve area, you can buy containers of fish and feed the seals & sea lions. We felt like we were spending enough money feeding ourselves, so we just watched other people flinging the fish around - what a fun thing to see! Jan took a video & we'll post that later.
