OK, so I got ahead of myself. Whirlin' Waters was before the Aquarium. But we'll get to that.
A few days in the sand and we were ready for our favorite water park, Whirlin' Waters. I still am amazed because this park is part of the SC Park System. We don't have stuff like that here at home!
So, apparently it was summer camp field day or something, because busloads of kids were streaming in here. Translation: long lines. The best ride/slide of all, Riptide Reef, was closed for motor failure. Grrr! Even stick-in-the-mud/Cave Dweller Mommy will ride that one!
Translation: longer lines for everything else.
Oh well. It was still a blast! Check it out:
The Water Guns: One of Eli's favorites
The Wave Pool, complete with personal watercraft (inner tube :-))
Then there's the kiddie slide. Eli wanted buddies, but eventually did it ALL BY HIMSELF!
Side note: this is the very same kiddie pool/slide that permanently scarred my right knee! Looks dangerous, doesn't it? :-)
What water park trip is complete without a corn dog, with lots of ketchup?
