Friday, August 28, 2009

Due to time differences , travel prices, distances , weather , irrational urges and the over use of a laptop we flew to Atlanta from Pensacola. This merely a stop-over.We know nothing about Atlanta so there may well have been tons to do. We know Dr Martin Luther King was from Atlanta.......that's all I got.....oh the Olympics were held there...the one with the bomb. And let’s not forget that it’s the birthplace of Coca Cola. They have a Coca Cola museum, ...we skipped that. What we did do is what any tourist would do when unable to think of anything else to do that doesn’t involve drinking,....we went to the aquarium.

As a rule we are pretty much against animals of any kind in captivity but as far as aquariums go, the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta kicks ass. We got to see four whale sharks in the biggest tank in the world, it’s stupid big, but a cage never the less. They also had three Beluga Whales, such graceful and beautiful creatures, they made me feel sad........apparently 3 whale sharks have died in the tank previously......that’s not so cool.

Goodbye Atlanta, hello Greyhound.......the silver, 4 wheeled container of morbidity. I grow weary of these bus trips and the losers, reprobates, potential mass murderers, neo-Nazi’s and gangsta’s that use them to creep from state to state.......but they’re cheap so I’ll just suck it up for a few more weeks.

We’re off to Nashville, Tennessee now, where, according to state law , you may not shoot at wildlife of any kind whilst in a moving vehicle....except whales. I’m looking forward to hanging out with some cowboys and finally coming to the home of my hero.....Mr Jack Daniels.

I’ll update my hot diggity blog once the Nashville leg of our trip is complete. See y’all in 5 days.
