What do you do during a power outage?
I usually have a lot of fun on holidays, and Memorial Day was no exception.
Made SeaWorld in the morning to stand in line for an hour to experience the new Manta ride.
Played with the dolpins. First time I’ve ever petted one.
Went over to Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery because I’ve always wanted to get a picture of the headstones, each with a little flag in front of it. About 65,000 of them.
Visited Cabrillo National Monument for the best views of San Diego while standing on the ground (flying’s better).
Back to SeaWorld to dine with Shamu:
“Dining with Shamu” at SeaWorld San Diego has to rank as one of the best meals I’ve ever had. The food was far better than I expected for a theme park, and it was a buffet. Along with the one-hour meal came a 30-minute private show by two Shamus (note that there are eight “Shamus” at SeaWorld San Diego). The meal and show is only $39 per person (adults).
When we got home it was dark:
I mean dark! The condominium complex where I live was the only place without electricity. According to my neighbors, there was a loud explosion around
2:30 p.m. San Diego Gas & Electric had seven huge trucks and about fifteen people here trying to figure out what was wrong. Power was restored a couple of hours ago at 3:40 a.m. Thirteen hours without electricity, which also means no Internet! And it was a noisy 13 hours with all the racket going on.
Poor Zoey the Cool Cat didn’t know what to do.
