Atlanta

Breakfast was quickly eaten, and all of them snuggled in bed and watched a couple of TV shows.

Most of the day was spent watching TV, reading, or looking at some of the digital video taken at the couple’s wedding. Of course, BP and FT were right in the middle of everything.

When the couple slipped off to try out the jacuzzi, BP decided she was getting a little hungry, so she slid over to a bag of cereal and ate some of it. Of course, she was still in the bag, when the bride came back into the bedroom. “Now the other bear is getting into things!” Missy told her new husband. He came into the bedroom and got a quick picture of BP in the bag.

“I’m beginning to think these bears are enjoying our honeymoon too! Maybe we should take them around Atlanta with us tomorrow,” suggested Missy. “Sounds good to me!” said her husband, Stu. “Maybe we can get a lot of photos of the bears enjoying the honeymoon, as if it’s their honeymoon.” BP and FT were excited. They knew they would be going and seeing lots of new things!

The rest of the day passed peacefully. The couple enjoyed a meal courtesy of the hotel’s delivery service. They ate some new Greek foods they hadn’t tried and declared them delicious. Around six in the evening, the couple went down to the hotel lounge for the complimentary cocktail hour, although they brought their drinks back up to the room.

It was decided that the couple would visit Underground Atlanta tomorrow, and all of them fell asleep.

What an exciting morning for the bears! They woke up raring to go! They were going to go see Atlanta! After a nice, leisurely breakfast and a nice shower, the couple was ready to leave the hotel.

Before they left, however, they went down to the lobby and checked with the concierge about the best way to travel to Underground Atlanta. She suggested taking the Marta (Atlanta’s downtown subway train system). “Wow! We get to travel by subway!” squealed BP. “Hehehhee,” said FT. Both bears took the opportunity to get their pictures taken at the hotel’s front desk.

The couple also took a few pictures of the bears in the beautiful courtyard located in the middle of the hotel. The hotel only had three floors, so the courtyard did not seem as if it was located in the middle of a large

city like Atlanta!. “I really like this place,” FT said to BP, “I’m glad we are staying here.” BP agreed, of course.

All of them soon left for the nearest Marta station located about 1/2 way up the block and across the street from the hotel.

The bears enjoyed riding on the Marta! It went so quickly! They constantly shifted so they could see better.

They finally got to the Underground Atlanta station and got off the Marta. The stores were located just down the hallway! How cool! The first shop caught the eye of the couple. Cows! A whole shop of just cows…both large and small!

“We have to go in there,” said Missy, and they all trooped into the shop. Right inside the door was a Santa cow…perfect for this time of the year! Of course, BP and FT had to get their pictures taken with Santa!

They decided to get a few more pictures of some of the other more interesting cows.

“What’s next?,” asked BP. “I think we are going to stroll up the street,” said FT. Several people along the way exclaimed over the cute pair of bears wanting to know where the couple had found them. Of course, BP and FT fluffed their fur and looked as cute as possible each time!

At the end of one of the streets was a small train engine and coal car with the name “Underground Atlanta” written on the car. Of course, the bears had to have their picture taken at the train to prove they had been there!

The other end of the street was just as interesting. In fact, BP and FT found a really neat little car just their size, as well as a neat little truck.

Before they left the area, they went out into the courtyard and took some pictures of the fountains and all the purple flags and signs. Missy and Stu declared that Atlanta was celebrating their wedding by decorating itself in the couple’s wedding colours!

On the way back to the hotel, the couple decided to get some pictures of the front of the hotel with the bears. The couple decided to order food from the delivery service again, although they choose a different restaurant this time. BP collapsed on the bed and rested for a short time, while FT watched some TV.

After supper, the couple headed for the cocktail lounge. This time they took the bears with them. In fact, BP got to push the elevator buttons!

Both bears were delighted to meet the bartender! He was so nice to them and fixed them their own drinks! What service!

BP and FT enjoyed sitting at one of the tables with Missy and Stu. The bears were soon being admired by all who passed by them, especially one of the other hotel guests! She told them she was also on her honeymoon!

Worn out by all the attention and the full day, BP and FT soon went back up to their room and snuggled into the bed for the night. They whispered to each other about all they had seen that day, and they were excited about what the next few days would hold for them! Tomorrow, they would be off to Alpine Helen, Georgia!
