Murals of Steveston BC

Today I'm taking a mini-vacation to one of my favourite lower mainland towns, Steveston BC. I had the opportunity to meet fellow blogger Rhianna. She writes about her float home in a blog called The Eclectic Arc. She's also a massage therapist here in Steveston. As we walked around, I noticed several murals adorning the sides and backs of buildings in this quaint town.

This large mural features Orcas that frequent the Strait of Georgia.

Most murals have a nautical theme, even the side of Village Bikes,

and the Steveston Coffee Company. I just wish I had a brighter day for sharper pictures. I guess I'll just have to come back. -- Margy

  5. It was lovely to finally meet you and fun to show you around my little town. I am so lucky to have that Orca mural as my view from my treatment room. I have never seen the Canadian flag one before, where was that one? Funny story, I checked out that link to Bonnie of Clyde and noticed a comment from another blogger Tim Zim, whose exploits in rebuilding a large boat I followed for years. Unfortunatly his boat met the same demise as mine and he stopped blogging. I went to check his page tonight and he had just posted today that he finally got himself another boat. What a very small world!! Bloggers United lol.
