Sea Wall - Mural description

LOCATION: near 5670 Teredo St.
MURAL: Sea Wall, 2004-05
ARTIST: Dean Schutz
MEDIUM: Acrylic and latex paint

This vibrant mural depicts many of the underwater plants, mammals and fish that are native to the ocean nearby. At one end of the mural you can see a Harbour Seal and a Quillback Rockfish. A snorkeler perched atop sea star-covered rocks spots a Giant Pacific Octopus. Near the far you’ll see Pacific white-sided dolphins that have in recent years been spotted in large pods locally, often performing quite a show.  It is this diverse and colourful variety of sea life that makes our local waters so popular to snorkelers and scuba divers.
