One of Seattle's less informative signs

And maybe in front of a tree they can put a sign that says "Tree."

Maybe they mean that you can view a different shore, meaning that bit of land out there? Not that that's much better, but hey, I'm tryin' here ;)

Possibly, but then you always can in Puget Sound. It's just a fjord, not Lake Superior. :) I'm guessing they intended it as "It's officially OK to get out and look at the beach here; it isn't a private driveway." But then "public beach" would have made more sense...oh, whatever. :)

Immediately next to the Pacific in Santa Monica is Ocean Avenue. Thus, when you reach said road, you're greeted with a sign that says "Ocean". When I first encountered this, I thought it was a bit unnecessary, but appreciated the effort of clarity.

Hehehe. Well, yes, I did wonder if the neighborhood was meant to be called "Shore View", but as far as I know, it isn't. Anyway, I've since seen that sign elsewhere on Seattle shores. So I guess it's just another unnecessary one.

There are times of year when that sign might be helpful, since all you'd otherwise see is an endless curtain of rain.

At those times, I would consider the sign false advertising.

Have you ever seen caution signs that say "landscaping" - those always make me wonder if a bush is going to jump out at me.

Exactly, on the false advertising.

Hehe--the way trees have been toppling in windstorms here lately, caution signs for landscaping would make some sense. ;)

I wondered about that--is this for days when it's incredibly foggy and you happen to collide with the sign and look up? "Water out there! Don't drown!" :)

MWUHAHAHAHA! That is classic!

Isn't it just? Aw, cute GG icon. (*wants Lorelai's hair*)

Heee! Glad you like the icon - it was created by morningicons. :-) I agree about Lorelai's hair -- it always looks so cute!
