More Gold Coast...Sea World

Yep, we had to do the tourist thing. Cost a fortune but it was worth it. After driving as far as we did to the Gold Coast we couldn't not do Sea World.
The kids were so so excited. I was unsure what to expect but decided to let the day flow by itself and to nto stress about money, food etc. The first place we entered was the penguin enclosure....

After this the first show we watched was the seal show. We sat a bit far away so i'm not sure if the kids realy understood what was going on but they laughed when i did lol.  From here we went to watch the Sesame St show at Sesame St beach. Have to admit it was as excting for me as for the kids. I could feel their excitiement and i loved that.
At Sesame St beach there were rides jsut for kids and a water play area. The first ride was an aeroplane which dh went into with the kids. Bub was too little so staye dwith me. the joy on their faces while flying around was priceless. We went on to have some yummy food, which i thought would be largely over priced but to be honest it wasn't.
The best part about this was the cups that we still have today and are used over and over again.
We walked around more and saw more exhibits. EVERYTHING was fascinating for the children. The last place we entered was like a pirate place where there were boats in water and the aim was for people on the boats to get the people outside watching as wet as possible. some people got absolutely drenched.

The kids thought it was hilarious how drenched I got from them and daddy. so much. fun.
To get back to the start of sea world we caught the monorail. such a huge adventure for the kids. Then to actually get out of sea world you had to go through the gift shop. what a way to make you spend money. We got the kids 2 little squirty guns ...a whale and a dolphin which of course they fought over which one to have. ...and to this day have not used lol.
Once back at the unit we had a quick dip in the spa followed by dinner and an early night for the kids.
