This was such a nice photo op and very quick as well! The wall itself is very huge so you can easily fit a huge family in one picture!

Just a painting wall. If you by any chance pass by during the sunset, I recommend you can stop and take pictures there. Otherwise, it is not a MUST place.

This is a great stop. We walked the trails and took pics here and it's free. I would definately recommend this for families visiting with small kids.

Really beautiful. And it's free. Located at the convention center and has a nice nature walk. The mural is beyond artistic. Especially if your a whale lover.

We went to this wall for the photo op. It's a whale painted life size on a large wall. Interesting to see how big they really are. Colors were very vibrant!

It was nice to see this had been beautifully repainted (and signed) since we were here in 2005. It's great that the community sees the value in maintaining this beautiful artwork.
