Vacation… My brother & niece’s visit _ Part 4_ San Diego SeaWorld

I had to make a post itself of our wonderful day in San Diego SeaWorld. We had such a great time! Highly recommend to spend a day or two there with kids! Its just a great place to get connected with the sea world and teach kids through playing and exploring!

SeaWorld takes you on a one-of-a-kind journey to the wonders that exist beyond the ocean’s door. A place where up-close encounters connect you to the energy, excitement and mystery of the sea and sea life. A world of fascinating days, captivating nights and exhilarating adventure.

We visited Turtle Reef, Shark Encounter, Penguin Encounter,Wild arctic, Flamingos, touching Starfish, watched the Sesame Street characters,took Shipwreck Rapids a tube style raft and ride on the river, where we got soaking wet at the first time!

We loved the show with Shamu, the killer whale, the sea lions, the Blue Horizons show, where we met dolphins and birds through a sea and sky experience by the way got soaking wet the second time that day! Oh, definitely take extra clothes for kids to change!

The day ended with fireworks.

Vacation… My brother & niece visited me in Las Vegas _ Part 1

When the idea came up, that this year my brother and niece coming to visit me, my niece’s first question was: Do you have any animals in America?
So we visited every place what we could think of to visit animals and they just find us anyway in any shape.

Than when she got here, she told me she voted for me every day. The voting for Las Vegas Best photographer was going on this time. Than she wanted to know if I am famous enough to take pictures of her and put it in a magazine. So here we are, a post of our vacation together.

They got here very tired in the late afternoon after almost 24 hours on the road. They went to sleep right away, than they were up at 5am, very hungry. Where should I take them to have breakfast at 5am? We ended up an Egg & I by the airport and stayed there until we speak with everybody on skype, then we started our adventure in Las Vegas.

Sightseeing, watching the fountain, visiting observatory, a nice coffe and ice cream of course at the Bellagio Hotel, looking around at Four Seasons Hotel and Mandalay Bay Hotel, where we visited the Shark Reef.
Westin Hotel and Ravella at Lake Las Vegas. Of course, not on the same day. :-) We had a lot of fun!

Flash flood after heavy rainstorm in the Las Vegas Valley

The weather was crazy today in Las Vegas. It was flooding across the Las Vegas Valley after intense thunderstorm swept through with heavy rain and lightning, flooding washes, delaying flights, snarling traffic and prompting helicopter rescues of stranded motorists in water-filled intersections.

Tourists always ask me why we have the man-made riverbeds all over the valley, what is totally dry the majority of the year. This is the reason. Flash flood.

Streets and homes were flooded and numerous intersections, including Blue Diamond and Rainbow, where I stopped to take some pictures. In some areas the water was 10 inches deep, making the street impassable to cross.

September 11, 2012 was the wettest September day on record in Las Vegas (1.18 inches) since record keeping began in 1939, according to the National Weather Service.

Here are my images of the day:

Kurt Warner former American football player in Las Vegas @ Central

Professional football Champion and 2 time MVP, Record-breaking Quarterback, TV host, Kurt Warner. He has gone from bagging groceries to winning football championships and serving as an analyst for NFL Network.

He played quarterback for three National Football League (NFL) teams: the St. Louis Rams, the New York Giants, and the Arizona Cardinals.
In Las Vegas @ Central he shared his story of a man, who continually beat the odds with integrity and an undeniable faith that captured the imagination of the sports world and beyond.
Very touchy, very emotional interview with Jud Wilhite.

Thank you Kurt Warner!
