Arriving at typhoon Lagoon--my first time here!!!
Off to the Shark reef tank!!!
I'm scared to death to swim in a nice warm(pools in Az are warm) shallow pool, so when I found out this tank was over 10 feet deep and COLD, I was beginning to think "what the heck am I'm doing"???The water was around 65 degrees!!! Freezing in my book!!!
Here I am thinking " you want me to put my face in this ice water", no that's ok!!!!
I made the girls promise to not leave me behind!!! Remember there are Sharks in this tank!!!
Yeah, I made it to the island for a quick sigh of relief!! I heard Stacie's friend scream out "Did you see that 6 foot shark"??? I said NO WAY!!!!
I only snorkeled twice, meaning looking down under the water, the rest of the time I was looking straight ahead pretending I was NOT in a Tank of sharks and sting rays!!!Then I heard the life guard up on deck yell out " Lady with the head above the water who's not swimming, you have to swim across the tank", I was so embarrased!!!!I heard a family in line telling a story how earlier in the day a little girl was kicking her feet(you are not allowed to kick) and a shark bit her in the foot, she had swim shoes on luckily but the life guard whacked the shark with his floatie!!! So I was taking no chances on kicking!!!I just hung on to Stacie's feet!!
A view of us under the water, taken by Stacie's friend Melvin who had a sick stomach and skipped this adventure!!!
At least the girls stayed very close to me!!!
A sting Ray!!!
lots of sting rays!!!
We are done!!! Can you believe I did this twice, I thought maybe I would like it more the second time, NOPE, I did not!!!!
Back in the warm wave pool!!!!!
Typhoon Lagoon is so fun, so many great water slides, one is done family style and one is like a water roller coaster!!!!The lazy river is almost 1 mile!!!!
The Board Room is a neat place to get food and drinks!!!!!A very fun day!!!!
