    I'd really like to go to the aquarium in ATL. Last time I went to an aquarium was over 10 years ago, unless SeaWorld counts.

    WOOOOOOW!! Lovely pics, would love to go to a proper aquarium (not just Deep Sea World or Sea Life Centre). Yes cwb, SeaWorld counts (cause it's the closest I've been to a real aquarium and will make me feel better lol. I remember the dolphins posed for a nice pic too)
