September 2017 - Port Angeles WA
Whether you are departing or arriving in Port Angeles from or to Victoria BC you must stop and see the murals located within walking distance of the ferry.
This mural was painted in the summer of 1995 and depicts the Kalakala, a well known and one of a kind ferry boat which for many years did summer runs from Port Angeles to Victoria , B.C. It was mainly stationed in Seattle and was one of the main attractions in Seattle before the construction of the Space Needle.
The Kalakala was built in the early 1930's and designed by Boeing who gave the boat its futuristic Buck Rogers appearance. Retired in 1973 and moved to Alaska where it became a fish processing plant it was left to decay on dry land until 1998 when the Kalakala Foundation in Seattle managed to get it afloat and bring it back to Seattle. Now this legendary ferry is being repaired and will once again be an attraction in Seattle.
