Saturday Nights

One of my favorite things to do on Saturday Night is to be in Jordan Hare Stadium watching my Auburn Tigers play football. It is a place of great spirit, excitement and pageantry.

Can’t Get It Out of My Head

What is my obsession? Well, it has to be photography. And specifically, photography as it relates to sports and fitness, travel, and nature.

The Downtown Aquarium

We recently made the short drive up to Denver to visit the fantastic Downtown Aquarium. Upon arriving, our first objective was lunch. The Denver Aquarium features a reasonably priced restaurant that exceeded my expectations. I considered the fried shrimp but decided to go with the healthier parmesan crusted tilapia and I wasn’t disappointed.  Many of the tables sit next to the enormous room sized aquariums full of a variety of fish, seemingly friendly stingrays, and mermaids.

There is also a cool looking bar area and gift shop near the restaurant.

After lunch, we left the restaurant and headed toward the aquarium tour area.

Before we began the tour we took time for a meet and greet with mermaids who posed for photos with the kids. Then it was time to leisurely tour the aquarium. We saw a large variety of sea creatures as well as reptiles and spiders.

A tiger?  I must say I did not expect to see that at an aquarium,  but the Denver Aquarium has one. He wandered about the rocks, down into the water, and took a brief face-to-glass-to-face pause with some of the other visitors which caused them to gasp in excitement.

I saw people of all ages enjoying their time at the aquarium. I highly recommend that you put the Denver Aquarium on your list of “things to do” when you are in the Denver area.
