Cover: A Look at Loggerhead

I was mesmerized the first time I saw a Loggerhead Sea Turtle. Even though I was born in Florida and have visited the Georgia and Carolina coasts over the years, I'd never seen a live was an exciting event.

As much as I'd seen on television about the Loggerhead, it was at Georgia Aquarium that I really "learned" about them. For example, it's believed that these guys can live to more than 100 years old...that of 1,000-10,000 hatch-lings only one grows into adulthood...and most fascinating, this species was swimming Earth's oceans when the dinosaurs roamed the planet!

Being an avid tourist has its benefits...I find that I've learned an awful lot. Not only about my beloved Atlanta, but about our world, our culture, our history, as well as where we're headed. I hope you have at least half as much fun as I do exploring our city.
