|Tails of the Majestic Migration Statue|
Most Sundays, I take my dog, Holly, to the Dana Point Harbor http://www.danapointharbor.com/for a long walk with my husband. We walk around the whole place and she says hello to the other dogs. She usually walks between the two of us. Holly is afraid of the big dogs, and when one comes along that looks like it might scare her, she will step back and walk on the far right of me, just so she feels extra secure.
We always pass this TAILS OF THE MAJESTIC MIGRATION statue. I wonder who had the time to make it, with all of the mosaics tiles and the little octopus that was inserted at the very top.
Then, as I stepped forward, I noticed that the sign below had all of that information. The sign reads:
Dana Point serves as a navigational landmark during the annual round trip migration of the gray whale from the artic to the Baja. The sculpture was a community art project as a part of the 2009 Festival of Whales-Ocean Awareness Day. The Sculpture celebrates and honors the annual migration of these majestic mammals along our beautiful coastline.
