The Ogden Point Seawall is a long breakwater at the shipping terminal, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, on Vancouver Island. It’s a popular walk for strollers, as it extends 2500 feet out into the Strait of Juan de Fuca. It was completed in 1916, using over one million tons of rock and ten thousand granite blocks.

Recent enhancements on the landward side have included a small park, a restaurant and a dive shop, as well as the artistic paintings shown in this photo.

    Clicked on the “view larger” thingie – what an amazing wall this must be to see first hand! And I have to admit I’ve never heard of it. Great capture and interesting background, George!

  • Hi Mike..well, it looks a lot different on the seaward side..no artistry there (yet). I’m not sure how far out the paintings will go, this is only about 1/4 of the length, but it’s quite nice to see.

    Nice shot, George !
    If it wasn’t for the people, I’d never have guess what it was. :)

  • Thanks Stan.. I took the first shot without people and then I had the same thought as you..it had very little perspective or meaning. But it’s so popular it’s never long before people come wandering by.
