Georgia Aquarium

The second segment of Jason's anniversary present was a trip to the Georgia Aquarium. Each of us has an affinity for aquatic animals, as silly as that may sound. We marveled at the sheer size of the tanks and the variety of species within them. Amelia was not at all shy about sticking her hand into the stingray & bonnet head shark touch-tank. The most spectacular experience of all was seeing the four baby whale sharks (the "babies" are 20-23 feet long!).  They were so graceful and beautiful, swimming peacefully alongside some very grumpy grouper fish and one very attention-hungry, somersaulting manta ray:) If you are ever in the Atlanta area, I highly recommend that you attend!
Upon returning home I got started immediately on a new hoop for the shop, inspired by a very whimsical sea creature!
