Season is here and there’s lots to do
“Tails from the Harbor” | Mural Progress
Our Harborwalk mural has an official name: “Tails from the Harbor”. The artist started painting in early January but was delayed most of the month due to the chilly weather. The temps have finally warmed up and now he can make better progress. Be sure to stop by, say Hello, and see his work up close.
