Laundry On Sundaes

Every beginning is only a sequel, after all, and the book of events is always open halfway through.

Day 1

Day 2 of our San Diego trip started with us getting a quick bite of breakfast at 7-11, and then it was onto the bus to take us to SeaWorld! We did most of the rides (except for the really kiddie ones).

The Skytower offered great views of the whole park and the surrounding areas:

We also saw almost all of the animal exhibits, like this cute beluga whale:

And this walrus:

And this turtle:

There was this cute duck couple walking around while we had lunch. The male was following the female the whole time. So adorable.

As for shows, we saw Blue Horizons:

And Sea Lions Live:

The sea lions were so cute and funny!

And of course One Ocean with Shamu! (Fun fact: I play Shamu during a skit in English class in grade 12. I cannot recall what the skit was about and why Shamu was in it.)

We stayed pretty much until the park closed and took a bus back to our hotel. By then it was getting pretty late and I was starving. Good thing Yufei booked a dinner reservation at Salvatore’s that night, since it happens to be our 4 and a half year anniversary.

Salvatore’s is a very nice Italian restaurant. We were seated next to the piano player and we really enjoyed the music throughout our meal. We were also given 2 glasses of complimentary Prosecco after we were seated! Such a nice surprise. Their bread was also nice and warm and crusty.

We shared an appetizer of tomato, avocado, and mozzarella cheese, which they actually put onto 2 separate plates for each of us (a nice touch):

For my main dish I ordered a linguini pasta with crab:

It was hearty and spicy and really yummy. Yufei got veal:

We were too full at that point for dessert, so our meal ended there. It was a wonderful dinner – great food, service, and ambiance!
