Dennisport Mural

Here is a photo of a sailing mural located on a former brick wall in back of Main Street in Dennisport on Cape Cod near "Auntie's Ice Cream Parlor, the Red Nun Restaurant and Jeremy's Barber Shop" which I took on "Columbus Day" this year. This mural represents sailing of course, but not the "Nina, Pinta, or Santa Maria" of the Christopher Columbus fleet of 1492. It is said that the Vikings visited Newfoundland in Canada and also the town of Dennis before it was a town in approximately 1005 with Leif Erikson. We don't have a "Leif  Erikson Day" celebration with getting off of work although October 9th has been deemed "Leif Erikson Day".
