San Diego Sea World | The Instagram Session.

By Posted in - Featured Post on September 19th, 2011 A young man showing off his San Diego Sea World ticket.


Last week, after a two decade hiatus, I got reacquainted with some old friends from my youth. Shamu, Clyde, Seymour and I spent many a summer together. Each year, we (my mom,grandparents and I) traveled to Ohio to spend a few days camping at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Campground so we could hit up Geagua Lake and the now defunct Sea World of Ohio.

This reunion came about from a birthday request from mom. Since she had Beth and I as well as my grandparents all in one place for her birthday this year (a rarity), she decided to pull the Sea World card. And you know what I’m glad she did, everyone had a great time and we got the photos to prove it.

    Great photos. I love how the instagram app gives photos that old school look, like they were taken on a polaroid back in the late 70’s. Very funny first caption,

    These are awesome! I haven’t been to Sea World since I was a little girl, but I have to admit these photos are making me want to go back. Looks like you had a great time 🙂

    @Tours of the Vatican, It really was a lot of fun! If you have a chance, I say go back, especially if you can go in the off season or weekday when it is less busy. -Randy
