WARNING: The following posts contains photos of numerous creatures and critters of the sea. If you are extremely ‘squeamish’ or faint at heart, you may want to take a deep breath first…… KIDDING … it’s not THAT bad! Quite frankly there was nothing that could have possibly stopped us from getting to the Aquarium. Once again, extended summer hours came to the rescue and granted an extra hour to explore. We would later find that was the perfect timing. I figure I’ll let the photos do the talking with the aid of a few captions 🙂
We got on a plane!
Watched them soar over our heads though – signifying our entry into Atlanta
THE GEORGIA AQUARIUM
Took a trip to World of Coco Cola (Story to follow) and got this photo only to realize now that I have no photos of the exterior of world of coco cola .. HOW SMART!!!
Fish and whalesharks 🙂 in perfect unity!
School of huuuuuge Crevalle Jack fish. I’ll admit.
apparently it’s mating season in the zebra shark home they like it rough!! … there was some crazy tail-to-mouth action going on for some time – we got caught up watching 🙂
Grrrr I can’t spell the name of these organisms. Anemones? There are almost unnoticeable to the touch
Calico crabs, sea urchins (purple) and live rocks!

wolf eels and starfish. Took me a while to realize that they weren’t stuffed animals randomly placed in water

Crawled for miles just to see these african penguins! … Seriously
Exploring made fun
It’s electric … boogie woogie woogie
