Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt #67: Our Choice!

PHOTO OF OUR CHOICE

The Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt theme for this week is A PHOTO OF OUR CHOICE IN A TOPIC OF OUR CHOICE.

Since this week we get to choose ANYTHING WE WANT as our Photo Hunters' snap-shot, we've chosen this photo taken last year at
Sea World San Diego.

Here's the back story ...

When Mom was a "Teacher of the Year" finalist in 2006, part of her glamorous prize pack of swag was a pair of tickets to visit Sea World.  

Mom has been dozens of times, so she gave the tickets to our grandma as a part of last year's Mother's Day present so that she and grandad could see the animals an' have bratwurst at the Anheuser Busch restaurant (where grandad likes to sip the beers an' grandma watches the Clydesdale horsies ... especially the long-leggedy baby ones who bounce all around the meadow an' paddock).

While they were at Sea World, grandma an' grandad took photos of the flamingoes an' stopped by Mango Joe's to snap a quick pick of this righteous cow in his cowabunga surfing gear.

Skeezix the Cat would likely LOVE his giant magenta Rayban Wayfarers ... Although I prefer his funky, flowered surfer shorts!

If you get a chance to visit San Diego, plan a day trip to our Sea World Adventure Park.  Make sure that you have a frozen lemonade an' visit the beluga whales ... but most of all, take a cruise in one of those sky buckets out over the water.  It's beautiful and especially refreshing when it's hot!
