I've lost count of the number of times I've walked along the Canal.
It wasn't until last week I noticed the beautiful mottling
of the concrete retaining walls along the Canal basin,
near the fire station. The walls are corrugated, not only to create
some visual interest, but to increase reinforcement of
the walls themselves. The fact that such beautiful colors and textures
have appeared over time, simply adds to the subtle
beauty of the place.
