Wed Jan 9th - 80 degree weather, no kids = All day at a water park. (It was a little slice of heaven.) We went to Atlantis (big hotel out on the Palm, man-made island)
 On the way there we saw what we call the twin Chrysler buildings

 Driving on the palm

 Fancy cars

We had a great day. Such a fun place. We rode water slides to our hearts content. The lazy river there is awesome! There is one that has rapids and you never really have to get out of the water. The lazy rivers connect and even send you up a conveyer belt thing to the water slides if you wanted to.

One of the slides sends you through a tunnel that goes through the shake tank.

Brad did the Leap of Faith slide a 27.5m tall and 61m long,that catapults riders into a transparent tunnel and through a shark-filled lagoon. (I errored on the side of caution and decided not to ride this one while pregnant. Although it looked like a lot of fun!)
 Hi Brad (see him standing out on the right.)
Down he goes!

You could also leave the pool/ water slide area and walk out and enjoy the actual beach too.
 Little fishies by my feet.

 Such a good way to spend a day!
Here is one final video from the day. I turned the camera on while going down a ride not a great video but makes me smile to remember how much fun water slides are. :) Click here.
