A Day of Watery Fun

Today we decided to do something......different!!

We haven't done any traveling this summer, so we needed a break and wanted to create a memory. After much discussion, we decided to go to the Georgia Aquarium! Despite a VERY late start, and a long, hot, wait to get in (almost 2 hours!), I have to say - it was wonderful! The variety of water creatures, each one uniquely suited for it's environment, is amazing. God's creativity is endless - He made the Beluga whales smile, and have the ability to bend their neck...the only whale in the world with this ability. He made the tropical fish with such bright beautiful colors, and the otters with fun personalities. And the WHALE SHARKS! WOW is not a big enough word to describe these massive, beautiful giants. I could sit & watch them swim by all day long & never get tired of it. The big tank at the GA Aquarium was so cooooool! The big ol' groupers, giant, graceful manta ray, so many various sharks, and those 4 giant whale sharks all share a tank the size of a football field. WOW!

Here's a few pictures from our day....
