Im tired this morning.

Just FYI. Visiting 3 aquariums ( Gatlinburg, Chattanooga, Atlanta ) , 3 hour river boat ride, Zoo Atlanta and hiking at Cades Cove TN. all in one weekend is a bit much. It was a 3 day weekend-but Im still whipped. I enjoyed seeing all of the fish displays, saw the dolphin show at the Georgia Aquarium, the boat ride was cool ( high speed charter boat on the Tenn river ) and the time with my wife and son was priceless----but it was VERY exhausting.

Doofus <<<<< forgot to charge the batteries for my camera before the trip to the Georgia Aquarium so the only pictures I got were from my iphone. I also am not a great photographer in dark areas so I didnt get many great pictures. I will try to post them tonight if I have time.

I wish my battery hadnt been dead so I couldve taken pics of the discus tank at the Georgia Aquarium. It was like 8 feet tall and 8 feet wide--couldnt get a real read on how deep it was from front to rear because of the display.

20ish Discus, lots of Rummynose and Cardinal Tetras, Black Neon Tetras, Penguin Tetras, large Pencilfish, and several Gold Nugget Plecos.

edit----found a link on the net to someone's pics
