Here, fishy fishy fishy!

Well, we have made it back, safe and sound from our Wild Ride! For those of you who were following our tweets, you may have caught a glimpse of what we got up to on the trip, but my plan is to update this blog with some of the best stories and experiences from the trip. Today, I begin with our trip to the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta.

Amy had looked up the aquarium before we left, and we decided it would be a great place to check out. We stayed overnight at a hotel about an hour outside of Atlanta, and arrived at the Aquarium for around 10am. Did not anticipate the 30-45 minute lineup that we waited in (really, who goes to an aquarium that early in the morning when they don't *have* to!). When we finally got in, I was definitely impressed. There was so much variety in the sea life - I didn't even know all these fish existed.

There were several interactive exhibits as well. I touched a stingray! I could have also touched a little shark, jellyfish, or an anemone (among other creatures that I can't remember anymore), but I was a bit too chicken. I think Amy has video of me touching the stingray though.

It's tough to say what was the most impressive though... the sharks... the gators... the reef... I think my absolute favourite were the jellyfish though. Those things were so pretty and graceful - I just loved them!

Check out more pics here. More trip updates to come!
