Sea World

Yesterday, we spent a long 5 hours at Sea World San Diego for our daughter's 2nd birthday.  It was a good way to spend the day, and she had fun. Though she is a tad young to really show it.

The penguin encounter was one of the last exhibits we went to.  It was a treat, an air conditioned indoor exhibit, and boy did I need the cooling off.  And my monopod stayed cold for a little while after we left to help add to my cooling down.  I could have spent hours there taking photos of them.  It was hard to get shots of them underwater with all the people there.  The exhibit has a conveyor belt in front of it and a raised platform behind that.  I had to sit on the back of the bench to raise me high enough to avoid getting people's heads in my shots.

Outside of the dolphins, my favorite animals are the Polar Bears, Walrus, and Beluga Whales.  It was very busy, so getting photos was very hard - especially the underwater ones.  I really need to go during the week when maybe its not so busy.  They are magically beautiful.  I think for our anniversary this year we are going to do the special encounter with them verse going out to eat at some boring restaurant.

I don't want to make this blog go on forever, so I will make this a numerous series like the zoo ones I did.  Look for more to come soon!
