I only went to Marineland once when I was a kid. I snorkled for the first time there. That's all I really remember about it, though.
We used to photograph weddings at the Catalina Room until it closed last May to make room for the new resort. It was right next to the old Marineland site. It's been sitting for so long, I'm surprised it's taken this long to get construction going. It was funny to look out during a wedding & see the wild goats on top of the old tanks, though.
