"GEORGIA AQUARIUM - #1 in the US"

2016.04.30
pixel
Oh, the wonders of the seas...
pixel
I love the icon for the Georgia Aquarium, which is #1 in the US and #2 in the world
pixel
pixel
One of two albino (white) alligators
pixel
This little guy looks prehistoric and his name reminds us of the dragons of myth - leafy seadragon!
pixel
Visitors get to walk through and around the entire 274 foot long aquarium - almost the size of three football fields
pixel
Two of the four Beluga whales
pixel
A "touch and feel" tank let me run my fingers over these, plus rays and small sharks
pixel
Manta rays can reach wing spans of 26 feet!
pixel
Sea otter (he was really quicker than I was - I barely got him in the shot!)
pixel
I had hoped this shot was clearer. This is one of my favorite creatures - a cuttlefish. We watched them being fed small live shrimp which they grab with lightning speed

When Larry and I were snorkeling in Cozumel, we came upon a massive school of these American eels, migrating to the Sargasso Sea to breed. The waters were thick with their shimmery bodies and beautiful iridescent fins that surround them. It was a sight!
pixel
"Look, it's Nemo!"
pixel
This Picasso triggerfish moved constantly, but I wanted a photo of him since we've never actually seen one in the oceans
pixel
These are only cell phone shots again through 2 feet of plexiglass, but I hope you enjoyed the wonders of the earth's waters!
pixel
"So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it, according to their kinds...and God saw that it was good." (The Living Bible - Genesis 1:21)

I'm posting this a little early, because we are on our last day home and I won't have time to do it tomorrow! So...have a peaceful and restful Sunday.
