Firstly just had to share this great shot I took last night from our balcony.
Amy was up early, like usual, but I managed to sleep in until nearly 6am (and that really is a sleep in for me at the moment). Got up and read blogs (LOOOOVE having my new laptop) while the girls watched TV. Around 7.30am we went downstairs to Bakers Delight and got some breakfast which we ate by the pool. The girls then went swimming while I read a magazine. At 9am we went back to our room to get packed for Seaworld.
Upon arrival (it’s only a 10min drive) we bought our Fun Passes and dropped off the towels/swimsuits in a locker. We stopped to see the polar bears – one was out playing in the water – so cute!!! I could have watched him all day but the girls had other ideas. First ride was the flume log ride – lots of fun, then the Bermuda Triangle (the girls went again by themselves – thinking they were most grown up). We then went to Sesame Beach and the girls did a couple of rides. We enjoyed the rolls we had packed for lunch.
Amy then went on the corkskrew (upside down roller coaster) then they went on the Pirate Ship – 3 times!!!
Next up was another visit to the polar bears – this time two were out looking for food.
Then onto Shark Bay. The girls loved the petting area and of course, seeing all the fish and sharks.
On our way to see the penguins we saw the 4D movie, then the penguins (but only 2 were out swimming). The girls then spent time at the water park. They went on some slides and on the big raft ride. I had planned on swimming but couldn’t be bothered getting changed, then changed again. Plus I think the water was on the cold side :-).
From here we caught the skyrail back to the entrance to see the famous Ski Show. We didn’t get to see all the animals and none of the animal shows so we will go back for a half day to see what we missed.
We got back to the apartment around 5pm and have settled down to watch some TV. I’m thinking it’ll be an early night as it’s been a long day.
Tomorrow – either a water park or walking around Surfers/shopping/swimming
