I am exhausted! Yesterday we spent 8.5 hours walking around at Sea World, so I feel tired and a bit sore all over today. But there was a lot to see and do. It did of course not help much that it was HOT either. The sweat kept dripping off us. But we had a great day! Sea World is a must if you are interested in dolphins, sharks, beluga whales and killer whales. I think they lack a bit when it comes to regular fish, I would choose The Florida Aquarium for that.
But the dolphins and the whales, wow... During one of the dolphin shows I actually got a bit teary eyed just admiring these awesome creatures. But the most impressing show is of course with the killer whales. Extraordinarily beautiful! As they explain, they don't actually train the whales, they "ask" them to do things, and the whales do it if they feel like. That was apparent during the show we saw, since they had to take a brake in the middle when the whales decided they didn't feel like cooperating. Conservation and research is a big thing with Sea World, they do a lot of good.
All in all a very nice visit.
Friday and Saturday we mostly just enjoyed the pool area at the resort we stayed at. Sarah and I was in the pool 4 hours on Saturday, luckily it was a salt water pool, so no nasty chlorine smell afterward. Relaxing, fun and good food basically sums up the weekend.
Before I get back to work, here are some pictures of the beautiful Killer Whales:
