Animal Planter

Animal Planter, Warrenton or Hammond, Oregon Warrenton or Hammond, Oregon ~ March 28, 2010

Animal Planter, Warrenton or Hammond, Oregon I've enjoyed looking at this planter in the grassy median ever since I first noticed it. I don't know how old it is, but I hope it's around for awhile longer. I'm not sure how long that will be, since it has clearly been affected by the wet environment. The planter was made with nice colors, and it features animals of our maritime area.

The median separates 6th Street from Pacific Drive and stops at Lake Street, just beyond the planter. Not that I would have known any of these street names. It's across from the mini storage on one corner, the mini mart on another corner, and is at one of the entrances to Ft. Stevens State Park. I'm actually not sure if the location is Hammond or Warrenton, but if you know the area, you will know where it is. There are small stores where you can buy bait and tackle, and various things needed for an outing in the park or a fishing trip on the river or ocean. Can anyone tell me if this is officially Hammond or Warrenton?

I've found myself taking so many photos of animal art "along the way" over the years, that I finally started a blog for - yes - Animal Art Along the Way. It's not brand new. I'm up to 107 posts now, and it's an *almost* daily blog. I'm sure that parts of this planter will appear there soon.

I think it speaks well of those in charge of a place to put up such a cool-looking planter for the public to enjoy.

But ocean (salt) water takes its toll on just about everything.

What an eye-catcher! I sure hope it is being taken care of ... I also would hate to think of it crumbling away to nothing.

It certainly has a certain something going for it.

I think it would be fun to make one of these planters. It wouldn't really be that hard. Oh, and I'll have to hop on over to your other blog too.
