Cute Kittens and The Atlanta Aquarium pics

Here, Bookie is dreaming of goldfish and tuna. I did disturb his beauty rest with the flash on my camera. He sleeps 23 hours a day. Notice his Cindy Crawford type mole near his nose. This is how he received the nickname "Crawford Bear". I know it's hard to keep up with all of the aliases we give the kittens, but it's fun to confuse them.

This is the petting pond of stingrays. There was also a small shark in this tank. The stingrays seemed to enjoy human interaction. They would brush against your hand so that is rubbed on top of their head, much like the Schmeldings do. I was too chicken to pet the shark.

This big turtle came out of a shadowy corner in one of the tanks. We were amazed at his size. He quickly scooted away into the darkness.

The Beluga whales were the star of the show. They enjoyed human interactions too. They seemed to smile at everyone. I was mesmerized and could have watched them for hours.

This penguin reminded me of Skinny. Do you see the resemblance? The volunteers came in everyday to clean the football field sized tanks. They don't get paid with money, only with lots of smiles and flashes (by cameras, not by ladies).

This was a very impressive large fish. Skinny could eat this guy for a whole year.

I found this R2D2 painted mailbox on the streets of Atlanta in front of our hotel. Considering my hubby is a Star Wars "freak", he was thoroughly amused.

I hope you have enjoyed our pictures. If you are ever in Atlanta, I highly recommend the Aquarium. I also highly recommend going on a Sunday at 8:00am. The enormous crowds prevented us from going Saturday. We had around 3 hours that were virtually tourist free.
Now I have to get the cats off of my side of the bed so that I can get some sleep. Have a great weekend.
