Signs, Signs #53:

15 Feb

Some of the signs I have captured while enjoying the day walking at the SF Municipal Pier.

Multi-lingual signs are always helpful and a must in cities like San Fran whose population is multicultural.
No, no to dungeness crab. Just get them at Pier 39 (kidding).
Who would swim in freezing water?

    Very important signs, indeed!

    As to your last image and question, I refer you to Outdoor Indiana’s Facebook album, titled “Surfing Season.” Images of two fellows surfing just off the southern shore of Lake Michigan… I’ve lived the majority of my life in Indiana, 25 of those years very near to the southern shore of Lake Michigan and I had no idea people surfed up there. Very dangerous undertow many days.

    The link, if you want to view:

    Love the ‘watch for swimmers’ sign!
    Are these crabs protected? That is a pretty steep fine for taking one.

      That first sign appears to be written in five languages but the other two just in English. I find that very interesting!

    I find these kinds of “international” signs are often funny. Don’t stand on a broken pier and fall into the water. Seems obvious to most, I guess. 🙂

    I wonder if the crabs are too small around that area?

    Like your selection of sighs this week. I especially like the one about watching out for swimmers….that is an odd one. And I have never heard of these particular crabs. genie
