Throwback Thursday

Going back to Grand Cayman for Throwback Thursday (and still about signs) I’m bringing back this golden oldie that was first posted in 2012.  I wonder if they were wearing gloves when they posted these signs?


Oh that was brilliant, wasn’t it?

While wandering about in the Queen Elizabeth II Botanical Park in Grand Cayman we saw so many amazing and different plants, flowers, and animals – and this sign on a tree.  Now earlier we had seen a warning sign about not trying to touch or feed one of the big residents of the park (wasn’t EVER going to attempt that one; warning well heeded no problems) so when I saw this warning sign I had to get partially off the path (and we all know what can happen when one doesn’t stay on the path) to read what it said.  “Oh! I gotta take a picture of this”.  “Ummmm, honey, you know it just stopped raining a little while ago don’t you?” said Dh to me as I was composing my shot and he was standing a bit away.

“Huh? Oh! Eeeeekkkk!!”  I went dashing up the path.  They really should have another warning sign not so close to the tree

    You do seem to be rather incident prone. How’s the knee?

      No incidents here just a warning. Knee has two scars on it and is a bit tender but on the mend. Thank you for asking 🙂

    Now there is a tree to avoid…

      It was the second tree of its dangerous sort that I’ve come across. The other was in the Virgin Islands.

    I do wonder how many people touch just because the sign says don’t 😉

    Yikes! Amazing how deadly something as ubiquitous as a tree or bush can be. Makes poison ivy look like a wimp.

    Sheesh, what a close call—and mostly because this sign is so stupidly positioned!!! Glad you escaped. 🙂

      I’m glad there weren’t any raindrops falling on my head by the time I got to the tree 🙂 🙂
