Tennessee Aquarium

I didn’t have anywhere to be until 6:00 pm, and I didn’t want to spend my afternoon in my less-than-comfortable room at the Chattanooga Choo-Choo. I hadn’t planned on touring the aquarium, but it was right there …

Amanda was one of the aquarium guides. She was standing next to a pair of Hyacinth Macaws, talking with them and about them to several kids.

Near the exit, there was a display of Tennessee folk art. I couldn’t help noticing the little red chair …
