Georgia Aquarium

On our way back from Ft. Benning, we stopped in Atlanta for a couple of nights and stayed with one of my cousins who lives there with her family. It was wonderful to see them, and we thoroughly enjoyed their hospitality.

While we were there, we took a trip to the Georgia Aquarium, which was amazing. Elijah was particularly excited because he is absolutely crazy about sea life and especially sharks. I think I enjoyed watching him almost as much as I enjoyed the exhibits!

Here is Elijah, all ready to see the aquarium with his shark sunglasses, shark T-shirt and shark backpack, filled with every book he owns about sharks (just in case he needs to do a little research while he's there, I guess!)

Looking up in the Ocean Voyager exhibit- a large clear tunnel surrounded by water. It feels like you're waling along the ocean floor. Very neat.

Shark and ray touch tank. It was harder to touch them than you might think, but he managed to brush a small hammerhead.
