This week is SIGNS. Next week is DOORS.

SIGNS=
My favorite sign in Australia, taken near Uluru.



This is my least favorite sign in Aussie land. How I ever managed to get into the Great Barrier Reef of my own free will, I'll never know. I did get stung by a jellie, but not the deadly box jellyfish, nor the blue bottle jellyfish.




This is a sign that cracked me up in Ireland. Did people really mistake the waterway for a road?

Very cool pictures. All very needed signs! Love the last one best! I will post mine before heading to bed, so catch me later. Hope you have a great Saturday!

Tennessee Mom said...

I love Australia, I've lived there twice, wish I was still there:)

And maybe in Ireland after a few Guiness at the corner pub some people need a reminder they can't drive in the water:)

These are good signs. Was just surprised with the last.
My Photo Hunt is up too.

Teena said...

Nice collection :)

I'm in!

Renee said...

That last one is too funny! Where I lived as a kid they decided to dam up the river and make a huge lake... they just left all the roads that were there. So there were instant boat ramps. But I hope they told all the old timers first.

Those were so cool! I found one liike that with the car and the cliff but in France.

YellowRose said...

Love the pictures!! My daughters just got stung by a jellyfish this week...bad things! Love the sign in Ireland!!! LOL

Happy Saturday, mine is up!

michele said...

Those are great. I would be tempted to steal the one with the kangaroo -- it's cute.

mar said...

I guess some drivers have to be reminded that there is water along the road, lol, because we have some of those signs too! Happy saturday!!

I failed to notice the jellyfish warning sign while hubby and I were swimming 10 years ago that's why I ended up being stung by one. It made my leg swell. I had to be brought to the clinic of the hotel for steroid shots.

That's why, from then on I have been very careful about reading signages.

My photo is up too.

Dani said...

Great photos! Take care. Dani

Wystful1 said...

Oh we have tons of jellyfish here too! And I'm not sure I understand all of the people going into the waters during this time of year...especially during mating season when they're more vicious. LOLOL

Love the Irish sign.

My Saturday Photo is posted.

Deb said...

I like the "roo and you" sign best :))

Have a great weekend!

Mine's up!

Irish Church Lady :) said...

Good sign shots, Carmen. I have one from Ireland up too.

Have a good weekend!

Melli said...

LOL! I LOVE the kangaroo crossing! You definately have some very clever signs!

ZootsMom said...

What a hoot.. those are perfect..Mine up

Denise said...

Did any kangaroos actually cross the road?

Those are great signs!!! Especially the one from Ireland.

The second makes me cringe and is the reason I hate swimming in the ocean. I've seen too many of these types of signs and now that's all I think of when we go to the beach.

The third one made me laugh. I feel about saying that but it's almost cartoon-ish.

Enjoy the weekend!

Pam said...

Great choices...
Mine's up.

These are awesome signs! As for the last one, maybe sometimes the edge of the cliff arrives a little sooner than expected? Although, if you missed that, you probably wouldn't notice the sign, either.

Caroline said...

Great signs. That last one is the best. But the jellyfish one is really close.

Happy SPF!

Michael said...

These are hilarious signs... I especially like the kangaroo crossing sign!

eph2810 said...

Those are great signs :). I didn't know that they had seversal jelly fish in Australia...Glad that you didn't get stung by the dealy one.

Karen said...

Interesting signs. You are quite a traveller.

Chi said...

The Irish sign made me smile...and I am so envious of you getting to visit Australia....maybe one day. *s*

GoofyJ said...

Awesome signs! That last one really cracked me up too! :) I played. :)

Yoshi said...

OMG that sign in Ireland... classic!

Maribeth said...

Great pictures. I love your signs!

TNChick said...

Very cool signs. That last one is kinda funny... some people! ;) My fave is the first.

bobealia said...

Um, I don't understand how to play.
I know this isn't that funny, but whenever I see the sign "Slow Children" I imagine it to be equivalent of "Deaf Child" and I imagine slow moving, slow walking children all over the neighbourhood. I.E. Slow-motion children.
Silly, I know.
I actually like the jellyfish sign. It's quite creative...

Julie said...

Great signs. Love the last one!

Just Expressing Myself said...

Frances

TARDY LONI! said...

Here the common sign for animals is a "deer". I'd love to see kangaroos hopping around! The one with the car diving in the water is a hoot! DUUUHHHH!!!! LOL!

I am late, but I finally got my picture up!

*Skittles* said...

Great signs! I love the last one. Maybe someone did drive into the water. LOL

Pink Chihuahua Princess said...

These signs are a hoot. I especially like the kangaroo one, because around where I'm from you see the deer sign just like this one all the time.
