This is us in front of a tankwhich had a lot of stingrays, goliath grouper, hammer head sharks, and whale sharks. You can see the rays behind us. The entire aquarium contains about 8 million gallons of water. This one tank behind us holds more than six million gallons by itself.
Here are some jellyfish. I always enjoy watching the jellyfish float around.
Here is a beluga whale. We sat and watched these swim around for a few minutes. There were two belugas in this tank and one of them kept swimming upside down. Unfortunately, I could not get a good picture of it! We had a really good time and would definitely recommend the Georgia Aquarium if you are ever in Atlanta.
Everytime we go to Georgia to visit I think about what a creative God we have! I have lived in Texas all my life and I didn't know there were states that didn't allow you to cut down trees in order to put up billboards. There are immensely tall trees everywhere you look, and they are being preserved. Now, this makes for some headaches if you don't know exactly where you are going and how to get there, but it is awe-inspiring everytime I am there. I thought about this again at the aquarium. God is so creative. All those different fish, stingrays, sharks....I just can't believe how many unique types there are! Dave's dad said something to me about how much fun God must have had making them all. It was quite ironic because I had been thinking something similar all day! God truly does reveal himself through His creation!
