Vacay Update

Good Evening!  Vacation is going well :)  We went to the Pirate's Voyage on Monday and it was a lot of fun!  There was diving, pyrotechnics, singing, animals, and acrobatics.  Miss Dolly knows how to put on a show. 

We paid $43 per ticket, which was probably a little over-priced.  The dinner started out with a bland creamy vegetable soup.  Next up was a cheesy biscuit (reminiscent of Red Lobster) and half of a rotisserie chicken.  The meal was rounded out with corn-on-the-cob, mashed potatoes and a BBQ pork rib.  For dessert, they served apple turnovers.  Like I said, the show was very entertaining but the food left something to be desired.

There was also an awesome gift shop with very reasonably priced loot.  Sadly, this hat was not purchased :(  I would recommend not buying the souvenir mug before the show.  They sell them in the gift shop for $2.77, as opposed to $4.50 with a non-alcoholic beverage.  When you get into the show, the drinks are included with the ticket so I would just wait to have your soda then.

As soon as you walked in the door, the staff took your picture in front of a green screen and during the show they came around with your pictures.  They were one for $20 or two for $30.  I'm a sucker for pictures so my mom and I bought two and split the cost.  All in all, I was very glad that we went.  

Yesterday, we went to the Ripley's Aquarium.  It was no Baltimore Aquarium!  It was very small and on the expensive side. 

After the aquarium, we went to get our rock-n-roll on at the KISS coffee shop.

I would like to claim that we went here only because we had coupons but alas, coupons or no, Alex had this on his agenda.  I had an unsweetened iced tea and Julia and Alex had some non-coffee blended drinks.  They were surprisingly tasty and wouldn't discourage a visit to this tourist trap.

What have you paid way too much money for on vacation?
