Today we had the choice of spending the day at Sea World or the San Diego Zoo. I chose Sea World. A few of us spent the day wandering around seeing all the sites, my favourite was Shamu the whale. We rode to the top of the sky tower and ran for the bus at the end of the day as we were running late, but not before I managed to get a photo with Shamu (well someone walking around in a Shamu suit anyway).

Next stop was Mission Beach for the chance to ride the rollercoaster and go for a spin on a bicycle along the foreshore. Erna, my roomy, had put her sunglasses in her top pocket for the rollercoaster ride and they fell out during our first upside down turn, so instead of riding the bicycles, we spent our afternoon trying to get in under the rollercoaster to get the sunnies. We didn’t actually get in under the rollercoaster ourselves but the staff found Erna’s glasses and we were on our way.

Back to the hotel to change for dinner, dinner this evening was at Dicks in the Gas Light District, a restaurant where our waitress threw insults and napkins at us all in the name of fun. Of course, some of the diners took the joke too far and ended up throwing food at one another, that’s my queue to get the truck out of there.

A few of us made our way to an Irish pub for a few quiet drinks, most of the others headed out to a club for another night of noisy dancing and falling down drunk.

I'm always glad when people know exactly when their queue is. I usually leave when they start wearing the breadbaskets as hats :)
