During our road trip we decided to take a fun detour and go to the Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies in Gatlinburg, TN.
They did a great job painting this mural over the large fish tank. You can look down into this tank and then go below and travel under it. It was amazing. I also like looking at the picture for color inspiration.
The carpeting was also pretty cool.
I love the color story in this picture. Its hard to see, but there is an angler fish behind the orange coral. I tried to get a good picture of it, because I had knitted one in December for my oldest son (link to the pattern here).
The lionfish is my favorite fish. Inspiration can be easily found in its striping.
This was a fun extra to the penguin exhibit. This painting was made by Maureen the penguin.
Walking back to the car I saw this window display.
I really love looking at these stripes. Right now my thoughts go to knitting socks, scarfs, and hats inspired by them.
