Walk on the Canal, #3

Decided to try a different section of the service road at Herring Run.  Instead of walking east towards the Sagamore Bridge, I walked west, between the 2 bridges.

Pretty flowers still blooming.

The dragonflies were huge.  And none of them would land for me to get a good pic.

Looking east.

End of the Herring Run.

Walking west.

This is a very pretty wall which appears to have been painted not too long ago by AmeriCorps Cape Cod.

I love the little lobster and tiny ninja turtles!

Then I came upon this wall, covered with seagulls, which are also painted on the path.

I did about a mile and a half and it started to get uncomfortably warm so I turned around and headed back.


  1. Wow!!! Thank you for showing me something I cant believe I have never seen,and its not just in the pictures ;) ....... HOW MUCH DO I OWE YOU <3 ?????????

  2. You are so lucky these things don't get immediately painted out like they would here (unless they had absolutely no artistic merit, in which case they would be left forever. A local jobsworth once painted out a Banksy.

  3. Lovely pictures! I love your blog and that is why I am giving you another award. Pick it up when you get the chance!
