We rode the MARTA to the Georgia Aquarium, where we saw many interesting things, like Whale Sharks and Beluga Whales. We alse got a super-cute shot glass to add to our collection. Then we walked around the Centennial Park and met a nice guy walking two Chihuahuas who recommended a lot of restaurants to get lunch at. We ended up going to the Hard Rock CafĂ©. Then, Mike discovered that he had left his pocketknife at the aquarium because they wouldn’t let him bring it in, so we had to go all the way back to get it. Of course, I gave him a hard time all the way there. Then we hopped back on the MARTA to the hotel, where we decided to go to Kennesaw to view the Civil War and Locomotion Museum. I really enjoyed the aquarium, but I must say this museum was very interesting as well. I wasn’t sure how it would be, but they did an excellent job of making it interesting. They had displays on what the soldiers on both sides wore and ate, and a special exhibit about the Great Locomotive Race. After dinner at Montecalvo’s, we decided to take the backroads back to the hotel. We stopped whenever we say something interesting, including a really nice fish store. We saw lots of pretty neighborhoods with brick houses. It was quite hilly in this particular area, and the houses were built right into the hills. Tomorrow: Helen! Wunderbar!
