look at me

I visited the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta yesterday for the first time. I was especially looking forward to seeing the whale sharks and the beluga whales. The whale sharks are massive and there are four of them in the tank. Four belugas were in another exhibit and as we entered, one of the males was swimming close to the 'glass', giving us a good view. The announcer was citing various facts and one was that the beluga could probably see us about as well as we could see him. I watched more closely as he approached... his eye zooming past the crowd... and then he circled around for another pass.

I must be getting old... I came away wishing they were all where they truly belong, swimming free in the sea.
