I'm definitely enjoying the theme this week; I thought it was just a run of the mill theme, but thru' my bloghopping I find so many terrific striped items/objects/animals/posts.

Have a great weekend.

I love tropical fish, and this one is particuarly neat. His markings are rather amazing. But the sea is utterly amazing.

I am really enjoying seeing all the creative ways that stripes are created all around us. So interesting and fun!

Great photo and nice choice for our 'striped' theme. They really do exude a "don't mess with me" attitude don't they??

I came back even though I commented before - I think he is thinking: "You'd pout too if you had to drink water that fish poop in all day."
