The city is in the process of replacing water mains and sidewalks downtown. This has been an interesting project, to say the least.

The water looks so beautiful here, it's interesting how it can "change" color from day to day.

Swain's on First Street has a fairly large collection of Aladdin lamps. I had no idea that people still use these...I guess it would be handy in a power outage.

"Graffiti or Street Murals"

Port Angeles is a small town and we don't have very much in the way of graffiti. We do have a plethora of murals, some that I have featured on my blog. (A dragon, a ferry, Native Americans, and a forest scene.) You may find more exciting graffiti among the following blogs...
