Georgia Aquarium

This past weekend we took off to ATL to go to the Georgia Aquarium. Words can't even describe all amazing creatures God has made.

Walking up to the aquarium.


Beautiful fish - this is one of my favorite pictures. I love taking pictures and really want to learn to take breathtaking pictures. This is not quite breathtaking, but I was pleased with how it turned out.


And here is Nico, one of the beluga whales. Seeing Nico kind of put a damper on the rest of the day for me. I felt so bad for him, being in this little tank. Now there may have been more tank, that we couldn't see, but it really doesn't matter....it's not the ocean. And Nico was in the tank alone. These whales live in pods, and are highly social creatures. I think they had more than one whale when the aquarium opened, but I believe two died. What a lonely life for Nico. I told Fonzy how I was feeling bad for Nico, and he said, yeah, it's like he's in prison, just for our entertainment. Yep, that's exactly what it is like...prison. It was just so sad....


Here's another picture of Nico, and the other whales I found online taken in January '06, but you can see how small the tank is. I mean, it's big, but small for them.


Here is a loggerhead sea turtle. I thought this was a pretty good picture too.


And last, but not least...one of the whale sharks.

Hey what happened to your other layout? Too boring??

Anyway, I love your pics.. How long did it take you from your house?

I wasn't bored with the other one, but people were having issues with links, so I switched back. I guess it was meant for me to have Betty on my blog :)

I'm thinking of changing my layout too.. Been looking around for free layouts.. I haven't decided yet.
