My parents used to own a big, fancy motor home that they set out to explore the country in. I was always fascinated by the adhesive map posted on its side that showed all the different states they had visited. It was truly remarkable the miles they had covered, especially considering the method they chose to cover those miles. I am not that patient. I find a day spent traversing the country in an airplane to be painful and challenging; I can't imagine a road trip which requires exponentially more time sitting in a cramped position. That doesn't mean I don't share their desire to explore and discover. And I, too, love "coloring in" the places I have seen.
This may be the best aquarium I have ever seen. I would love to go there again someday, sharing it with my children and grandchildren.
After our time in Atlanta, we flew north to Boston, Massachusetts, again having the opportunity to see new country for both of us. Boston held back none of its charms. It was beautiful, and the weather couldn't have been more delightful.
