Thursday, August 16: This week’s travel theme from Ailsa of Where’s my backpack? is SIGNS. Ailsa writes about signs: they come in all shapes and sizes. If you would like to join in, create your own post with the title Travel theme: Signs and put a link to Ailsa’s page in your post so others can find it. And check back in next Friday for a new travel theme.
The USA certainly has its share of strange & interesting signs, as Ailsa’s post demonstrates, so I focus my sign-hunting on western Maryland, where our family is on vacation, and in Ohiopyle, Pennsylvania. Here are a few from the mountains near Deep Creek Lake. I found this one at a Baptist Bible Church.
Believe it or not, there is a town called Accident near Deep Creek Lake.
This is a sign I found on the back of a bathroom door near Monroe Run Hiking Trail. I found it interesting and informative! 🙂
And here’s a warning to fishermen to please wash their waders so they don’t spread “Rock Snot”!
In Pennsylvania, we eat lunch at a cute little cafe where they write their signs on blackboards. This reminds me of my childhood, when I used to make all 4 of my little siblings sit in rows and listen to me “teach” them (who knows what!) and write on a blackboard.
And at this little cafe in Ohiopyle, Pennsylvania, the only option available to my vegan sons is in the bottom left corner.
