I saw Shamu do his thing today. Very impressive. He did his wave to the crowd, and he did his splash. (Although, I should note that he did two of the three planned splashes of the ‘soak areas’, so I think he may have been holding out for more compensation.) The whales that went before him were impressive, too. Lots of flips. I haven’t been to Sea World since I was a kid, so it was fun to watch the sea lions, otters, killer whales, and so on. The arctic flight was fun, too. It’s nice to experience all of this with children – to see how they take it in.
