Sort of on a whim, having found ourselves with a long weekend Meg and I went to Atlanta for a couple days to visit some of her family. While we were there we spent a day at the Georgia Aquarium, and if you haven't found your way there yet you should. It is fantastic, and you can even take a swim with the whale sharks. Obviously that would cost extra but after seeing them swimming about it is very tempting. I recall several people a couple years ago having quite the discussion about fish, you guys would love it. Pictures to follow whenever Meg gets around to uploading them off her camera.

Damn. I read the title and thought you crashed a helicopter into the ocean.

anyway, Georgia Aquarium is on my list if i ever find myself down that way. I think they have a huge tank of Mbuna.

I'd swim with a whale shark in a heart beat. I can't imagine how large his enclosure must be.

I might be misremembering, to be fair there are a whole bunch of different fish, but I do think I recall seeing them. But no, I do my best not to fly over water, I've done the water crash landing training and I didn't enjoy it.

6.3 million gallons. The tank is immense, and they actually have 3 whale sharks in there, the largest is about 25 feet.

It really is fantastic, my wife and I have always enjoyed visiting aquariums and anytime we are in a city with one we go visit it. This one is a real pleasure, the kids would love it. Plus ATL is full of enough other interesting things that a trip would be warranted.

It's a great aquarium, below is a favorite picture from the kids visit back in '07.
The walk-through tank where they have the whale shark is really neat, as is the huge one in the auditorium.

The Chattanooga aquarium is supposed to be on-par with Atlanta. I'll likely meet up with Senility over the summer and check that place out.

Interestingly enough, my wife's family lives in Roswell. Never paid any attention to that before.

Give me a heads-up the next time you'll be in town. I promise will make every effort to behave myself.

I read that to Meg and the direct quote was, "Ohh, can we go? Can we go?"

1) I thought about calling but by the time I remembered how close you were, it was Sunday morning and I was leaving Sunday afternoon.

2) About damn time, now we need to get his ass online.
