Three on Thursday | Georgia Aquarium.

This past Sunday, Marc and I visited the Georgia Aquarium … the perfect activity for a chilly, wet day. This was the first time either of us had been (nothing like being a tourist in your own hometown!) and I think we were both surprised by how much we really did enjoy it.

Sorting through the dozens of photos, here are my favorites, neatly organized into a group of three (because Thursday!):

We started with the penguins – oh my goodness are they fun to watch!

I had no idea starfish came in so many colors.

Or that jellyfish really could look cool. My only prior experience with them has been in dead piles on the beach … or leaving behind nasty stings that required a trip to the doctor one summer for Katie – yeah, not good. But in a tank – beautiful!

I took more video than photos because everything we saw moved … sometimes really fast, sometimes really slow, sometimes it made me laugh out loud … and all of it made me appreciate how fortunate we are to have such a fine exhibit so close to home.

see if you can find Dory and Nemo! also, whales are much easier to capture under water 🙂

Linking up with Carole; be sure to check out her post for more Three on Thursday lists.

    That looks like fun!! It’s been ages since I’ve been to an aquarium… well, actually, I’ve never been to an aquarium except for small ones at a zoo. I’m going to put the Shedd Aquarium on my Future List for Things To Do with the kiddos!!

    Oh, what fun! Although I’m not much on visiting zoos, I really like visiting aquariums. Jellyfish are just magical in the water, aren’t they? (Not so much in dead piles on the beach — or stinging.) What a delightful way to spend the day! XO

    What a great place to visit! The Camden Aquarium is the closest one to home in NJ and it’s just so-so, but then there’s the National Aquarium in Baltimore. I’ve never been there, but I bet it’s a good destination next time we’re in MD. I love those starfish; for some reason the colors remind me of KSH!

    when we visiting our son while he was doing an internship in Boston we went to the aquarium and it was fun. I love the penguins the bestest!

  • Margene

    Thank you the beautiful pictures! I really love the jellyfish! We have a great aquarium here and I should visit tohelp with my January doldrums!

    Beautiful photos.

    We used to do a 5K at Sea World in Orlando. I would try to run my best time, but when we went through the penguin enclosure, I always seemed to forget I was running a race. Killed my time EVERY time!!! LOL

    Looks like y’all had a great time, I haven’t been to the aquarium yet either. Guess I should add that to my list.
