Lucia, reporting from Atlanta,
Today was our day to visit the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. The weather was sunny and beautiful so we walked there from the Mart via the impressive Centennial Olympic Park built for the 1996 Summer Games. As we entered the aquarium, we were emersed in a school of fish swimming along both sides of the entryway. Wow! Then it was off to the touching pools for hands-on encounters with rays, anenome, shrimp, starfish, and urchins. The aquarium staff were always nearby to answer questions and fascinate us with interesting facts. Up next was a tour of the Amazon River.....we'll continue writing about our tour of this amazing place tomorrow since its time for bed!
