Newfoundland Has Murals Too

Thanks to all our traveling this past 2 weeks I'm at least a week behind on reading everybody else's blogs again!  More to come on our trip to the U.P., but here's a Monday Mural post featuring Newfoundland first.
Make sure to follow the link and check out the other participants, today's murals come from as far away as Dubai and the Netherlands!

I actually saw quite a few murals through the car window as we sailed through Downtown St. John's, but decided I wouldn't force Wayne to stop...until we saw the one on Signal Hill.

Signal Hill itself was socked in with fog, we couldn't even see Cabot Tower.  We went into town the night before our departure so we could try to spot some icebergs.  Not happening!

The mural was originally painted by Don Short of Mount Pearl in 1995.  I couldn't find any information about the mural itself and very little about the artist either.  In 2007 it was repainted by Angela O'Brien and Brian Penney.

However I did find a great new blog to explore.  Check out Ride Newfoundland and see the nooks and crannies of the island that I haven't gotten to explore yet.  Biker Missus even recently posted about the icebergs I didn't get to see.

More Newfoundland and more Michigan posts to follow!
