Georgia Aquarium

This year I went to the Georgia Aquarium for my 16th birthday! The Georgia Aquarium is the biggest aquarium in the world and is also known for it’s large tank that holds over 60 million gallons of salt water! The tank holds the Aquariums 4 whale sharks, the only whale sharks in an aquarium in the United States. I have been there before for my birthday but this year was different. I saved for two years to swim with their whale sharks on my birthday!

Myrtle Beach, S.C.

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is one of my family’s favorite vacation spots! Here are some photos from our recent visit:

Our favorite campground to stay at in Myrtle Beach is Ocean Lakes Family Campground!

On our last day at the beach we hunted tirelessly for shark’s teeth! I found 4 teeth! They were my favorite thing to hunt for!

We made it a point to wake up early every morning to catch the sunrise!

I saw lots of wood storks in trees!

I loved seeing an immature yellow crowned night heron (left) and a tri-colored heron (top right). The snowy egrets (lower right) were also cool!

Other cool creatures I saw included (left to right) a blue crab, a ghost crab, and a periwinkle snail.
