In my Making The Balboa Boardwalk Safer post, I mentioned that new safety signs were to be installed along the boardwalk in Newport Beach. They’ve just gone up this week, and they’re pretty cool and eye catching.
If you’re along the boardwalk, I think you can’t help but notice them. They stand out from the “usual” signs with their messages to “Slow Down,” “Share The Path” and “Beach Crossings.” The signs stretch along the entire boardwalk, generally alternating between messages. Here are some more examples:
I think the beach crossing signs is my favorite. Somehow I wonder if we’ll see it ending up on t-shirts and in other places. That picture of a surfer carrying a board is just so symbolic of what you see all the time in Newport. The sign screams out, “beach town.” That’s nice.
Here are close-ups of all the signs:
