After taking our early morning boat trip to see the iceberg in Twillingate, we had nothing planned for the afternoon. Locals told us that the town of Botwood might be interesting. Since it was within about an hour's drive - off we went! Each year, Botwood holds the Global Mural Conference which draws artists and tourists to this small, rural town.

The quality and quantity of the wall murals were quite a surprise! Justin was bored because it wasn't good for video, but I wore myself out either walking - or getting in and out of the truck for hours - with the tripod and gear - to photograph each new mural we found.

There are 9 murals shows below. I also photographed a 10th mural.....but it deserves it's own thread! LOL! HERE is the 10th mural....hope you like it!

#1 The Path We Built (in an alley way - an apartment building's wall)
