SeaWorld visit on July 28, 2013

Out & About

I have been so busy with home inspections this summer that I have neglected going to SeaWorld. That changed on Sunday when the scheduled home inspection was postponed at the last minute.

Some of my competition charge a cancellation fee if the cancellation is less than 24 hours before the scheduled inspection. I do not. As I often tell prospective Clients and Realtors: “If you have to cancel the inspection at the last minute, I’ll simply take a little mini-vacation and go to the Zoo or SeaWorld. That’s how I’m able to make myself available to you 24/7 down the road.”

A lot changed at SeaWorld between Sunday and my previous visit on April 19, 2013. The entrance has been moved, and the exit has been moved to near the entrance. Trying to get out of SeaWorld on a busy weekend day is horrible…. one exit line (and it was a line!) versus about twenty entrance lines…. mass confusion…. It’s like SeaWorld is trying to prevent people from leaving….

Following are a few pictures of the wildlife at SeaWorld, including a couple of flash videos.

    I wonder what the reason was behind changing the exit location? Sounds like the decision was a poor one. I love the markings on the Magellanic Penguin…I’ve never seen one like that before and seeing your close up is wonderful.

      Over where the exit used to be they are building new aquariums. Where the Manta ride is now, they used to have a lot of aquariums, including a huge one with about 40 moray and electric eels in it. Hopefully the eels will be back in the new aquariums.
