Sign, Sign, Everywhere A Sign

While in North Carolina, we came upon many signs. Mostly, they were about what you couldn't do, or warning you of some danger. I guess we need them, but they can be a bit strange out of context!

Darn! I was looking forward to climbing on cannon all week!

They weren't kidding, either. It's a wonder they're still open with all those hazards around.

I found these signs at Fort Macon on Atlantic Beach, a civil war era fort on the coast of North Carolina. Very cool, interesting, and fun to climb around, but steer clear of the cannon and those open drop-offs!

More to come later...

  1. Fort Macon was built in the 1820s as part of a federal government effort to protect the East Coast from British and French attacks. Forts were built up and down the coast, from Florida to New England.

    Fort Macon in NC did serve during the Civil War. It was in Union hands from early 1862 until the end of the war in 1865.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
