KIPing Across 6 Flags!



For those not in the know, to KIP is to Knit In Public!

About a month ago a good friend came to visit us and treated my hubby, my daughter and me to day at Great Adventure. We live just about 45 minutes away but I hardly ever go. My DH and DD go every year to the Boy Scouts annual Camperee there.

So, anyway, I thought I'd share my day with you! This is what greets you in parking lot! This coaster is called, "Batman"





( See the itty bitty people all hanging upside down?
<<)














And here I am, happily KIPping away, waiting for my crazy family to make it safely back to the ground again. It wasn't too many years ago I was a major roller coaster fan myself. Now it's nice to say, " If I never ride another roller coaster it's OK with me!


Ah! The dolphin show. (Where they do not teach the dolphins to do tricks. but to enhance their natural behaviors.)







(Double your pleasure,
double your fun!)










Notice the amazing
horizontal flying dolphin!

All that cool blue water. And I sat there in the hot,hot sun with nairy
a drop to drink.










While my brood went off in search of the next breath snatching excitement, I took the Sky Way to meet them at the other end of the park.















Hallloooooo out there!












Howdy, neighbors!







I caught a couple of minutes before the tiger show started to add an inch or two to the sweater I've been working on.










The tigers in this show are not trained to do tricks. They are trained in ways that enhance their natural behaviors.



Up there is a Siberian Tiger^.







To the left is a "Butterscotch Tiger" even more rare than most.











Great Adventure has a great breeding program. They've been very successful helping to make little baby tigers.











Contrary to popular belief, not all cats hate the water! Tigers just love it!









Boy! What an exhausting day! KIPping all that way from one side of 6 Flags Great Adventure to the other!

Time for a nap! 80)

KIPping. I just learned a new word today :) Love the pics of you knitting all over the theme park. I'm with you on the roller coasters. I used to love them in high school, but I will never go on one today. I just don't care for that feeling of being afraid for my life, know what I mean? :)
