We dropped Ally off at my parents house, we called the aquarium to make sure they were open (since many of the schools and such in the area had closed due to the weather). They said they were open and that all the roads from Birmingham were open the traffic was just very slow. So we thought we'd just go ahead and give it a try! We got there no problem. It rained a lot but we made it! We parked and got in without getting rained on and thought nothing more of the weather.
This is by far my best shot of the day I think! This is exactly what the jellyfish look like in the tank!We loved the American Alligators!The Elephant fish!The Asian Small-Clawed Otter! Japanese Spider Crab with an Anemone growing on its shell!This is the Ocean Voyager Tank. It is more that six million gallons of saltwater. It holds stingrays, mant rays, hammer-head, sand and whale sharks, giant grouper. It was really big!They have 4 of the giant whale sharks. To date these sharks are the largest package shipped by UPS!Giant Grouper
* Maybe I was a bit harsh on my criticism. It was really neat. Just not as large as we thought it was going to be!
Since it didn't take us as long as we'd thought it would to go through the aquarium we decided that we'd go to the World of Coke museum. Patrick had been when he was in school and I'd never been so we went. It was neat! You get to taste all the Coke products of the world. Some were good... some were not! I really enjoyed it!
Tuesday we enjoyed our left overs from Carrabba's with our glass bottled cokes! Nothing beats a glass bottled coke!
Finally we ended they day with dinner at Carrabbas!
* I'm trying to get all the photos on here but it's being weird. As soon as I get all the kinks worked out I'll post them so check back tomorrow!
