June 21, 1991
This photo was taken 22 years ago tomorrow at SeaWorld on my 7th birthday. We saw Shamu, touched dolphins, starfish and manta rays, were spit on by walruses and climbed until we couldn't climb anymore through the nets at Shipwreck Cove.
Things I would like to point out about the awesomeness of this photo:
● Acid-wash & Floral Print Jeans
And, how many of these did I see for sale at Target yesterday? All of them. However, no one who buys those retro inspired items will rock them like we did in the early 90's!
I spent that birthday at a SeaWorld very different from the SeaWorld you'd go to today. There were no rides and practically everything was hands on. The price to get into the park was $25 and parking was free. Now there are more rides than exhibits and it costs $79 just to get through the gate (and that's after paying $15 to park). I can't dog on them too much though because SeaWorldCares does do a lot of good conservation-wise, their parks just don't exactly show it now.
