Ten random things: Reader Request Month, day 40

Ten vacation ideas from the fine folks at Anheuser-Busch:

  1. Swim with the dolphins at Discovery Cove
  2. Take a thrilling ride on Gwazi, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay's mammoth double wooden coaster
  3. Spend three nights at the luxurious Kingsmill Resort and Spa
  4. Tour the historic Anheuser-Busch brewery
  5. Race three other riders down the Riptide water slide at Adventure Island
  6. Visit the famous Budweiser Clydesdales at Grant's Farm
  7. Learn about harbor seals and other marine mammals at Sea World
  8. Watch the Island Quest dive show at Water Country USA
  9. Eat breakfast with Elmo at Sesame Place
  10. Whatever you do, drink as many Anheuser-Busch products as you can without dying from alcohol poisoning

Today's list is for figgy_newton, who asked for harbor seals. I went to Sesame Place once; the most memorable part of the trip was when we met Izzy, the ill-conceived mascot of the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta.
