About Me

My photo
Delta, British Columbia, Canada
I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.

Unique or Funny Signs

Saturday Photo Hunters is brought to you by tnchick. Go on over there to see who's participating and go visit their sites.

Today's theme is "Unique or Funny Signs." This is what I came up with from my photographs.

This sign is at Bear Creek Park in Surrey, BC. People can barbecue over hot coals here so I guess the parks board figures that it's important to remind them not to throw their trash in with the hot coals. Hmmm....I wonder what would happen if they did?


This sign was in the town of Caerleon in Wales. My friend Jane and I were visiting all the historical sites dating back to the Roman era, and I thought it was rather funny to see the word "toilets" there.

Finally, my absolute favourite is this one. I saw this billboard as I stepped off the Roman underground metro and had to stop and take a picture. It's an advertisement for Heineken beer and is hilarious!
