Stuffed with sauteed sweet onions and bell peppers, garlic, dried raisins, salt & pepper, fresh thyme, wrapped with bacon, then baked to medium rare, cover and rest till it’s well done inside, about 10 minutes. It was an interesting and tasty main course for this year’s Christmas dinner.

Another killer whale in the show. She gently (even it looked more like an attack) landed her trainer onto the stage.

Killer Whale show is my most, or should I say the only favorite show in SeaWorld. Every time I goes there, I gotta to watch one. Those creatures are just too impressive to miss.
