Oh dear! What was I thinking??


I now approve this already well done TR. ;)
The aquarium portion was an enjoyable welcome addition. Thank you kindly sir! =)

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

My cousin had a wedding at the aquarium and they served fish. The food there was very good.

Looks like you chose the better weekend to go to SFOG... My friends drove all the way from Ohio and had terrible luck with the weather this weekend. Cold and rain kept the park pretty much closed all weekend. They didn't even ride a single coaster. Their first day the park opened but closed only after an hour and a half and it was reported that less than 200 guests showed up to the park on both Sat. and Sun.

Very awesome TR! Thank you for posting. I totally loved the aquarium. It IS huge! You have an Olympus right? I was trying to peg down the model number to check it out. I loved your shots.

SFOG reminds me of SFGA. I guess because of the similar rides they have, Nitro (although named differently), Superman, Batman... Would it be worth it for me to ever check this park out? And also GASM - but this one is not the same as ours. I wonder why parks would name rides that are completely different, the same name. Totally baffles me. :( I would make a pit stop on my drive down to Orlando this year, if I did not have to get there to meet someone within a certain time.

How on Earth did you know that??

Anyway, yes. It's an Olympus Tough 6000. But some of the photos are from Misty's camera, which is a Pentax Optio W10.

This was actually my first park with my new camera, and I honestly wasn't very happy with the results. By the end of the trip, though, I had the camera pretty much figured out, and now I'm very happy with it. I'm sure I'll have more trip reports up in the next couple weeks--and those will be better. =)

Don't sell this one short though. It was definitely enjoyable.

Ah...Ancient Chinese secret! ;) Actually I saved one of the pics to see because I liked the picture quality. You can just tell the difference, even if you were't at your best yet with it, the quality of camera. I saw the model number and looked it up. LOL. I definitely enjoyed this TR, and look forward to your future reports! Now, when you go on rides, what do you do with your camera? I am scared to bring my good one (Nikon D40X) because I dont want it to get stolen while I am on the rides.

That's pretty cool! A huge aquarium is pretty cool, a lot cooler than one of those cheap ones. =)

Thanks for sharing!
I love aquariums, and I have always wanted to visit this one.

P.S. I also think your photos turned out pretty damn good. I know it's super hard for me to take good photos of aquariums, so I can appreciate how clear and non grainy they are.
