This pic was taken from the front of the aquarium looking out toward downtown Atlanta...you can see the Coke building (museum) right across the sidewalk. This is an awesome aquarium, but we were talking and I think of all the aquariums I have visited, I still like the one in Chattanooga the best. The exhibits there are set up to where you see different cross-sections of the worlds rivers and oceans...but you see not only the underwater part, but also the trees, shrubs, and wildlife above as well, which are indigenous to each area. I believe they had more different types of every thing in Chattanooga. BUT.....Atlanta Aquarium is still awesome...don't get me wrong...it is AMAZING!!! It is the WORLDS largest aquarium, and they have 3 beluga whales (LOVE, LOVE, LOVE), and 4 whale sharks, which are the worlds largest fish! Pretty amazing to see. I got choked up a few times, just in awe of actually being able to see something like these creatures up close...especially the belugas...one of my favorite animals ever! Well, other than the Mandrill (Monkey).
Since I had no above ground succulents in sight today IN the aquarium... how about a few underwater ones??? These lovely and colorful underwater plants were in the tank with the giant crabs (Japanese spider crabs). This tank was a showstopper for me...made me wonder if I should have more of an interest in the plants under the sea!
When we came back outside, I saw this little building with a sedum roof...first one I have ever seen in REAL LIFE!!! I got a little excited! Looks like it is just getting started filling in...would love to see it when it is fully covered!
And a closer view.
