Sea World and Orlando

We took a trip to Orlando to visit my daughter and son-in-law. What a great trip. But as always...not long enough.

We went out to eat one night and this was the building next to our restaurant. We didn't go in, but I did snap a few pictures. And, I apologize for the blurriness in some of them, especially the whale photos. I'm still learning my camera and I left my manual at home. While in Orlando, I couldn't get it to auto focus. *sigh*

Wonderworks


Just freaky

The highlight of the vacation for my son-in-law was renting a convertible. Needless to say, this was my view for much of our travels in Orlando.

The convertible

One day we visited Sea World. Not quite as I remembered it from about 15 years ago. It is much more commercialized. Sadly. And, it is kid central. If you have a kid, that is the place to go. But, we enjoyed it in spite of Sea World's efforts to make it all that it shouldn't be.

The landscaping, of course, was beautiful. The flowers were in full bloom.

Fairy gowns


A riot of hot pink

Please forgive me for all the whale photos I'm about to post. (And I had a hard time getting it down to this amount.) If you don't love whales, or if you fear whales, you may want to skip ahead.

Look at his little face!


They were affectionate


This was the last thing the people in the front rows saw before getting drenched!


The wind-up


The splash


To our left


To every action...


...there is always opposed an equal reaction


Riding high


In flight


Grace and beauty


The dance


Taking their bow


Anheuser Busch now has their fingers in Sea World as evident by the Clydesdales.

A sea horse?


Do you see the real sea horse?


Big 'ole manatees


Happy dolphins


Da-dum ... Da-dum, da-dum da-dum da-dum!


The end.

visited Sea World (in San Diego tho') in 1986!
The Wonderworks building is fascinating. Downloaded a copy. Hope you don't mind.

@hillgrandmom, Oh, sweetie, you can download any photos you want!

I visited the Orlando Sea World back in the early 90's, and I noticed that it is much more commercialized now. Really a shame, but it was still fun.
