Our next adventure was to visit Seaworld - the home of Shamu (the killer whale) - think Free Willy the movie. It was a rainy day so we donned our plastic $2 raincoats and braved the park. Thankfully the rain kept everyone away. We were able to get on the rides easy and have our pick of seats in the stadiums.
The rain did not dampen our spirits. The next day in San Diego we boarded a trolley tour and visited some of the tourist destinations including the old town, Coronado island (and the Hotel Coronado) and the USS Midway - a naval boat with loads of jet fighters. The boys (particularly Paddy) loved it. Paddy thinks he wants to be a jet fighter piolet when he grows up.
