Homeschool Day at Sea World!

We just had a great time at Sea World. They did a really great job of providing many educational opportunities. We learned about dolphins and even fed them! We saw sea lions and seals REALLY close up! There were divers in the Shark/Coral Reef exhibits. On a stroke of luck, we got to sit in on a training session for a Beluga Whale with her baby in tow! My kids always love the penguins, so we went down the conveyor belt twice! Then, they did a special show with the Shamu family and then another at the Sea Lion Theatre. At each, we learned a lot about the animals as we got to see them in action. There were the killer whales, of course. Then, at the next show, we saw a walrus (HUGE!), an otter, and some seals! It was so interesting and fun. The only thing we missed was enjoying it with friends. We were the only ones from our homeschool group that were able to go. Oh well, maybe next time. It was a fun morning!!!!
