Georgia Aquarium

Leave it to mom/dad to go on the neatest field trips by themselves.  Now, this little piggy is really jealous!  Over the weekend while mom was off from the worky place, they went to the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, Georgia.  Mom took pictures – of course, she never leaves home without her camera – snorts.  Some of the pictures are amazing!  Mom/dad both said that it was a learning experience and they had a ball!

Look at the picture to the left that mom took of the jelly fish.  It’s like it glows in the dark!

 

Did you know that the Georgia Aquarium has more than 10 million gallons of fresh and marine water and more aquatic life than found in any other aquarium?  That’s right off their web page and I do believe it is true.  Mom took all kinds of pictures.  This little pig was awestruck.

At the Georgia Aquarium, you can even swim or dive with whale sharks.  Shivers – I don’t think I’m anywhere brave enough for that.  Do you think you could?  You can also have an encounter with a dolphin.  Now THAT I think I could do – 🙂

Do you see that huge thing swimming there in this picture?  It’s a shark – shivers

I don’t know how mom/dad took it standing there and taking pictures with that giant swimming so close.  It was almost like you could reach out and touch it!  And the size – THUD – piggy down.

This was one of my favorite pictures that mom took.  Look at that fish!  You just want to go, “Here fishy, fishy, fishy.”  It was huge.  That was definitely one that didn’t get away if you know what I mean – snorts.

Of course, dad saw this and wanted to get his fishing pole out – crazy daddy!

Do you see what is in this picture to the right?  Look closely because there is a lot of green and you miss it. 

Just don’t turn your back because if it was a snake, it would have gotten you.  Drum roll – I know it was a pretty bad joke.

Mom said this was as close as she could get to that creature, definitely no close ups with the camera on him.  Of course, I told her that he was just green with envy.  HA – I know another bad joke. 

I leave it up to the professional comedians.

Who doesn’t love the penguins?  Mommy said that she could have watched this pair all day long because they were really putting on a show. 

They kept diving in and out of the water acting like they were playing ‘tag’.  I can imagine how I do with the purr things here at the Hotel Thompson.  That’s fun!

 

 

I hope you enjoyed mom/dad’s field trip to the Georgia Aquarium.  It looked totally fun!  I have to wonder though.  I wonder if they would take a new pig guide?  I could walk people around that huge fascinating place with the best of them.  What do you think?  XOXO – Bacon

    HaHa! I would like to look at sharks but I think people must be very brave to put even a toe in the same water! perhaps I saw Jaws too many times when i was small. 🙂

      Snorts – dad says the same thing. He says every time he puts his piggies in the water, he hears the theme to Jaws. I think it would be cool to play this music the next time he’s in the shower. That’ll get his blood pumping, you think? XOXO – Bacon

    I love penguins very much – specially their social behavior (some people could learn a lot from penguins). The white sharky looks scary – I saw all his movies in tv – wow boy that was thrilling! My mom tried to import a jelly fish once as she was a puppy, sadly her mom was not amused as she found it in her suitcase:o) Have a great thursday, Bacon.

      Mom/dad said it was an awesome place. I personally wouldn’t know because they didn’t take me… stomps hooves. I think I should be able to go. I could be dad’s seeing eye pig or something. It would be fun! XOXO – Bacon

      It did look neat. I would love to go. I don’t think people would give me a second glance walking through there looking at all of the other animals. You think? XOXO – Bacon
