Dems Da Rules

So many things at the beach are camera worthy, and let me tell you, I sure do have a lot of  photos to work through!

The water!  The sunsets! The wildlife!

and yes, the signage!


No Pets, No Fires, No Parking




So many places you can’t go …


and things you can’t do.


Don’t litter,


pick up after your furry friends,


and be sure to call 473-5252 if your vehicle is gone.


But you know what?  It’s all worth it!


More photos from Nags Head soon!

  1. So interesting, all of the no’s . Every time I have had the opportunity to travel to Europe & abroad, I am reminded of all of the bylaws & don’ts we are surrounded by in North America. I recognise some are in place for good reason, but somehow I feel like we have lost our senses when it comes to just being able to enjoy the beautiful land in which we reside.

  2. I must be hungry, because as I read through the signs I was temporarily outraged that I couldn’t have *fries* on the beach.

    What a world we live in, eh? Great photos one and all and such an interesting theme for a post. The lifeguard tower shot is my favorite but the sign that told me to keep my butt off the beach made me laugh. Great fun!

  3. What’s that old song about:
    Sign, sign, everywhere a sign
    Blockin’ out the scenery, breakin’ my mind
    Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign?

  4. Yup, way too many “negative” signs! It would be much easier to deal with them all if their messages were delivered with a sense of humor. I once saw a sign outside a shopping mall that instead of saying “pick up your butts,” it said “if you want to smoke, there’s an ashtray over there (with an pointing arrow) with your name on it.” Just made me stop and laugh each time I saw it :D.

    As for your pictures, love the lifeguard chair, and the beach scene – gorgeous!! Can’t wait for the rest. 🙂

  5. Somewhere in that down is one happy sign painter Livin’ La Vita Loca. Man! I’m hearing that song, “Signs, signs everywhere is signs. Blocking out the scenery and breaking my mind. Don’t do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the signs?” Well this ‘long haired freaky person’ dus protest loudly. Maybe I’m a rebel, just maybe I’ll bring my cat, stop and park on the beach and drink a cool one too. You have bail money right? LOL xo K

    • It’s so funny that you quote those lyrics as I had inititally put them in this post. 🙂
      And yes, I’ll always have bail money for you!!

  6. Laurie, I have yet to see an east coast beach, but is on my bucket list. However, when I get there I will be well prepped on how to comport myself! 😉
    Loved your photos this morning. 😀

Because Boomdee dared me: Lay a little sugar on me :-)
