Actually we've owned two or three aquariums over the years, nothing approaching even in miniature the fantastic dreams I nursed in my youth. After a while the aquariums became the visual equivalent of white noise at best -- or worse, a tedious chore. Too many things in real life competed for money, time and energy, and it seemed like the only fish we had any success with were plain-colored danios.
I want to share some of the pictures of our day at the Georgia Aquarium, and if you're ever in the area -- I highly recommend a visit there.
This South African penguin enjoyed watching us as we watched back from a glass enclosure inside its habitat.
I can't remember the species of fish, but this pretty specimen is indicative of the beauty housed in this aquarium.
I couldn't leave without giving a hug to Deepo, the Georgia Aquarium mascot. Boy, I love fish!
