Miss Norma, who gained internet fame when she opted out of cancer treatment and chose to travel the U.S., made a stop at Georgia Aquarium Friday.

Norma celebrated her 91st birthday, which was March 31, among California sea lions, whale sharks, African penguins, and of course, birthday cake.

Norma, her son Tim, and daughter-in-law, Ramie, were in Atlanta as part of their trip around the U.S. and Norma had never seen a whale shark. Lucky for Norma, Georgia Aquarium has four whale sharks in the Ocean Voyager Built by Home Depot exhibit.

Not only did Norma see an up close whale shark feeding, she met a California sea lion named Diego, an African penguin named Ruby, and celebrated her birthday among the thousands of marine life at the Aquarium with a whale shark themed birthday cake.
