It’s a Dolphin’s world, we’re just living in it

A few weeks ago, back before a barrage of work, birthdays, and family visits knocked me out of my blogging mojo, the family was invited to attend the grand opening of SeaWorld San Diego’s new dolphin show Blue Horizons.

As you may recall, Swee’Pea, TheMonk and I got to be a part of the final weekend of the old dolphin show back in September of last year. So we were excited when SeaWorld invited us to be their guests. I thought the kids would enjoy it but I really didn’t know what to expect.

It turns out, the show is all about a Princess in pink with a fantastic combination of acrobatics and great dolphin tricks. I wish I could put into words how theatrical and fun the show is but I’m not sure how to do it. I do know that it’s difficult to take everything in at once. So many things are happening that we’ll probably have to go again just to get a better feel for it.

I know Swee’Pea won’t mind. Did I mention the Pink Princess? Maybe next time, she won’t chicken out when it comes time for a photo.

  1. Beautiful pics!

    I could hit Sea World with a rock from my house. I don’t know if I can take our twin girls to the dolphin show though. I suppose it’s futile, but I’m trying to keep them from ever knowing about pink-clad princesses.

  2. Wow, they have really stepped up their game with the dolphins! The last 2 times we have been they have been closed for renovations and we have been dying to see this show. Looks like it was worth the wait! Thanks for the great photos. Now I am really excited and can’t wait to go. (Can’t see taking the family this summer with the tourists, but the fall will be here in no time.) And when in the hell did the trainers get so young?!
