I have seen three. Detroit, friends of mine live at the Broderick tower, Chicago and Cleveland. Now I have seen four. It’s amazing how the painting are all over the world. Slowly I am adding to my collection of Whales.

Near the convention center, make a quick stop to view this beautiful depiction of sea creatures. Take time to do the nature walk which is free and close by.

These murals are beautiful. There is also a nature path to follow that tells all about the vegetation on the island. Good learning experience for families.
