a sea so surreal: Georgia Aquarium

Being in Atlanta, I took on the opportunity of touring the "world's largest tank" at the Georgia Aquarium. I've attached a youtube of the breathtaking view below as this youtube exactly depicts all of the aquatic life that I was able to gawk at with my own eyes... 

The Georgia Aquarium boasts an extreme variety of sea life and is noted for its young whale sharks, beluga whales, and manta rays. Being able to pet some was definitely a thrill. With a tank holding over 8 million gallons of marine and fresh water, you can literally stare, stare, stare and get lost in the deep blue trance of the sea for hours...maybe days. Ok just kidding but hours would seriously do you justice and get your money's worth. In terms of the other exhibits aside the Ocean Voyager, however, I felt as though the Long Beach Aquarium back home has a greater variety of activities that actually engage the curious lingerers.

Nevertheless, the Georgia Aquarium does seal the deal with its humongous tank. It's a real trip when you're standing up close by the tank's 2 feet thick glass, and a mammal 100000000000000x(times) your size swims up SO close to you that you naturally jump back by instinct, forgetting the glass wall of separation. No lie. This is definitely one of those places where "you've got to see it to believe it."
