2013: Florida Spring Break Trip 2013: Sea World

Our Exchange Student, Jonathan, had as his top priority for the week to be splashed by Shamu, so we had to make a trip to Sea World.  For the spread above I used the Park Map to create the background.  Doing this allows us to look back at an event in a single glance and tie memories to the places that we see on the map.

The black “Sea World” laser cut in the top left hand corner was purchased on Ebay.  You will also notice on all of these spreads that there are little shamu brads which I also purchased on Ebay.  Many times when I have multiple pages celebrating one day I will use something small like this on all of the pages to tie them together.

We arrived at the Shamu show early so that we could get in first and get a great seat in the wet zone.  I told Jonathan that we would get wet (see our rain gear) but I don’t think he believed me because the first time we got hit by water I looked over and he was soaking wet!  He looked over at me and smiled and shouted “This is the best day ever!”.  So I think that we helped to make his dream come true.

After the show, the Dine with Shamu restaurant was running a Spring Break Buffet special, and we were able to eat next to the holding pools and watch the whales for less than what it would have cost to eat fast food in the park.  What a relaxing experience that we will cherish for a long time.

I think that most people think that Sea World is like a zoo, but they have an amazing compliment of world class roller coasters as well. This last spread showcases some of the pictures of us on those rides, as well as some pictures from our other adventures on that day.  If you look carefully at the “Sharks” you will notice that it is ephemera, a napkin from the “Sharks” restaurant that I cut to fit on the page.
