Big Fish, Big News

reef shark, hammerhead, giant grouper
leopard ray, whale shark, manta ray

Last Friday Alex and I went to the Georgia Aquarium.  Touted as the largest aquarium in the world based on gallons of water and amount of fish, this aquarium does not disappoint.  We were regaled with sea otters, harper seals, beluga whales, penguins, and FOUR whale sharks (from Taiwan, I might add).

Anyone else reminded of Ursula's minions from The Little Mermaid?

 Giant grouper.  Apparently they're known to attack divers.  In a battle of giant grouper vs diver, my money's on the grouper. 

Loggerhead turtle.

Bottom line: the Georgia Aquarium is awesome!  

In other news, after we got home from the aquarium Alex asked me to marry him and WE'RE ENGAGED!!! More details to come later.  Yay!
