The Trip to Atlanta

Yesterday, Beth and I went to Atlanta. We had a wonderful time. First stop, Ikea, where we shopped till we dropped, and had and argument, and got grumpy. Shopping will do that to you. Especially when you are on a budget, and in Bethanie's case you can only buy what you can take home in your suitcase.

We finally talked things out in the office supplies section and decided to get the heck out of there and head to the Georgia Aquarium. Its the largest aquarium in the world and, despite the 22 dollar entrance fee, amazing.

We saw all sorts of fish, whales, and we also got to touch sting rays. They're a bit slimy but very friendly, comical almost. They seemed to like being touched and would swim towards your outstreched arm. One even swam by on the surface of the water, flapping his fins against the surface as if it was waving or playing.

It was good to get out of Savannah for a while and see some new sights. All in all, a nice trip.
