Langley carvings - The Conductor

This is my favorite of the Pete Ryan carvings I've seen so far. It's called "The Conductor" and is at the corner of 204th Street and Fraser Highway in Langley.

Wood carvings of Langley - The Farmer

Since moving to Langley at the end of August, we've been exploring its streets and alleys. Along the way, we've made some lovely discoveries -- like the wood carvings done by Pete Ryan. So far, we've found six. Over the next few days I'll introduce them.

Today meet The Farmer. He stands at the corner of Glover Road and Duncan Way.

Lumby murals

On our recent October holiday, we passed through the town of Lumby, BC. Besides being a pretty little town with a restaurant open for breakfast (even on a Thanksgiving Monday morning) it had murals!

In addition to the war memorial mural, I also found these beauties.

Taken straight from someone's album? These murals even have photo corners.

Some of the local wildlife.

Hanging out.

Not sure about this one, but it looks like a family tribute, judging from the coat of arms on the left and the formal family posed in the middle.

Overlapping images in the shape of saw blades add interest to this wide mural that celebrates Lumby's colorful gold rush and logging past.
