You see the blue heron on the bottom left photo in this mosaic? Very close to St. Vincent de Paul at the rear area of the Kenmore Park and Ride there is a nesting area of Blue Herons. The nests high up in the trees are something extraordinary to see. You can see more on my post here. All the dark patches in the trees are Blue Heron nests on this next photo.

We’ve enjoyed many of the services these local businesses offer during our years living close to and in Kenmore. Ostrom’s pharmacy, Kenmore Lanes (for birthday parties), Kenmore Camera, Tai Ho (great lunch specials) and others. All three of our kids graduated high school from Inglemoor. We’ve also found great bargains from St. Vincent de Paul thrift store over the years and donated many things there. Some of the images are historical and not current.

It was nice to see the business and community effort that made this mural happen. I’m glad for once I have the signatures of the mural artists.

I’m linking up with Oakland Daily Photo for Monday Mural and

Mosaic Monday with Maggie from Normandy Life and

ABC Wednesday for K is for Kenmore Mural.

  1. Hello, I love the mural. There is so much to see, lovely artwork. The heron rookery is cool. They are always neat to see up in the tree tops. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week ahead!

  2. I like the big, lazy golden retriever right next to the red-shirted jogger, and the small sailing ship in the sky by the leaping man with pole. Looks like you could stand and study this for a long time!

  3. Beautiful clear pictures, bright colors and all the interesting town history …. so this mural makes perfect sense to me (most of the ones in our city do not, but I am going to have to look at them more carefully)….. We love St Vinnie’s here in Eugene!

  4. I am glad that you stopped by the Garden Spot. Your very busy. We have one thing in common, we are both (were) both educators at different ends of the spectrum. I began my career as a high school English teacher and finished as term faculty at small university teaching freshman English. I’ve noticed that many of my blogger friends are teachers or retired.

  5. What a nice mural. I have a blog friend in Iowa and he and his wife are artists. They were commissioned to do a mural at the local train station. I cannot draw a good stick figure so I am always amazed by artists!
