June 11We spent the morning at Animal Kingdom, and I got a fabulous picture of a male lion on the Kiliminjaro Safari. I’ve never been able to get a picture of a non-sleeping lion on the safari before. That was quite exciting. But the best part of Thursday was that Hubby and I did DiveQuest at Epcot.

Along with about 14 others, we got a behind-the-scenes tour of the Seas with Nemo and Friends attraction at Epcot (fka The Living Seas), then spent about 45 minutes diving in their 6 million gallon saltwater aquarium with sharks, green sea turtles, spotted eagle rays, cow nosed rays, two huge grouper, and many varieties of tropical fish. We weren’t allowed to take cameras “backstage” with us, but my dad got this shot of me through the aquarium glass. Plus, this was the 11th of the month, so a picture of me seemed appropriate!

We had such a good time. It was neat to see what the cast members see on a daily basis. And the other guests thought we were rock stars! Before the dive, they paraded us through the observation area and the camera flashes were popping. It was fun to see our family from INSIDE the tank and to see the reaction of the other guests, especially the children, several of whom waved and followed us from window to window as we swam around the tank. We definitely want to do this again on another visit.
