Wednesday walk challenge Signs at the Beach and Steem Basic Income Give away

This is my post for the Wednesday Walk challenge hosted by myself, let me first explain the guidelines

Try and get out once a week for a short walk, can be from your office, home or anywhere really and walk for a few blocks or a few minutes looking for things to get shots of.

Try and get a few shots not just one

You can look for anything in general or decide on one subject you want to get shots off.

Try to limit yourself to a set distance or time from the starting location, say 5 Blocks, 5 Minutes walk or whatever and see what you can find in that short distance

make a point of looking around and up and see what you can find to get shots of that otherwise you may miss

Do a post with the shots you get on a Wednesday and tag it with #wednesdaywalk, also if you happen to join it this week please leave a link to your post in a comment on this post and I will try and visit them all.

Following me and resteeming the post so more see it would be appreciated but isn't a rule just a suggestion, but you may have a better chance of receiving a Steem Basic Income Share if you do.

I am not strict on these rules and hence why they are called guidelines and not rules

I will try and visit, resteem and upvote all who take part in the Wednesday Walk, plus I will be sending @steembasicincomeshares to a selection of those who participate.


The Walk I took over this past week that I am going to share is a walk I did at Gulf Beach, I did take a few beach shots but I have shared a beach post not too long along for a Wednesday Walk post so this week I will share some of the signs I saw at the beach

This is the first Sign I took a shot of near the end of my walk and it gave me the idea for this post.

In case you cannot read what it says here is what is on this sign

Prisoners of the American Revolution
Across this harbor, on January 1 777, a British ship, flying a flag of truce, put ashore 200 American Revolutionary War prisoners, all desperately ill with smallpox. The people of Milford made accommodations to shelter them, using the town hall as an emergency hospital. Captain Stephen Stow and Dr, Elias Carrington volunteered to care for them, Captian Stow and 46 of the soldiers died and are buried in a common grave here in Milford. Some recovered and returned to their homes.

Quite an interesting bit of history right there.

Now this sign when I first saw it here I thought was a bit obvious, why would anyone think its OK to drive onto the beach and park, but one night I was there when someone did just that drove right down by the water.

I was a bit annoyed for two reasons I thought it was a stupid thing to do on a public Beach, and secondly they drove right through the area I was taken a time Lapse shot of from beginning to end of the Sunset and they totally messed up the end of my timelapse and hence the whole 45 Minutes time-lapse series.

I was a bit evil perhaps kind of wishing that they were so biusy drinking and being loud and obnoxious that I kind of oped the tide came in without them noticing and flooded their vehicle!

It seems to me these days that everywhere you go there are signs telling you what you cannot do, funny thing is all the probited things on this sign I have seen many times on this beach, so clearly this sign isn;t strongly enforced.

The signs here are sure a variety of colors but apart from the first and last I share they all seem to be telling us what not to do, not that I am against all signs like this sometimes there has to be control of how much is taken from certain beaches to protect the balance of nature.

This one I wish they would enforce on a busy evening, sometimes all the parking spots are taken and many without the Milford Parking Stickers.

These stickers are actually free to residents who pay taxes tot he city.

This is one sign I am sure few people notice, but I am glad to say I do not think I have ever seen people walking over the grass and shrubbery areas on the beach

Here ends my Wednesday walk post and on to the....

Steem Basic Income give away

I mentioned in the guidelines that from this week I will be sponsoring a few who join the #wednesdaywalk challenge with shares on Steem Basic Income

What is Steem Basic Income you may ask well here is how they explain it

Steem Basic Income is a social experiment to bring a basic income to as many Steemians as possible. Members join by sponsoring others into the program. Steem Basic Income is delivered through providing regular upvotes to member content. so I have decided to randomly send some Steem to add shares for some of my followers so yesterday evening I sponsored the following people
@zirochka, @emjoe @nolasco, @photobe, @ilsaione, @bozz,

All people who joined in last weeks Wednesday walk, I would love to be able to give everyone who joins a Steem Basic Income share, but I don't make enough steem each week to do so, but I will try and share them around fairly between those that join the challenge

I hope a few of you may find this an interesting challenge and decide to join in.

I bit like us Kiwis LOL

Do you prefer beef or chicken hot dogs at picnics and bbqs?

@tonygreene113 Not sure what that question has ot do with my post but what the heck

in the past I would have said Beef, but have cut most read meat from my diet so nowadays if I was going to get hot dogs I may well go for chicken

·
·

Be extra careful with the chicken. Especially if the cook doesn't own or has ever heard of a meat thermometer.

@tattoodjay I love the subjects of your photography posts. The signs are great and some are kind of funny but understandable. I'll be working on my #wednesdaywalk post soon! And thank you for the shares. That was so nice of you! Resteemed and upvoted with what little upvote I have. I know my upvotes aren't worth much but maybe they will help out.

·

@melinda010100

Thanks and thanks for joining the Wednesday Walk :)

Amazing all the rules.. all the do's and don't's of this world

·

Yes I do agree that was the best sign there

·

@ilsaione Thanks for your Walk post :)

·
·

Thanks for sponsoring this challenge!

·
·
·

@ilsaione Its my pleasure i love seeing people’s walks

Beautiful @tattoodjay. Thanks for sharing , my man ;)

·

And thanks for your visit :)

Hey, my dear Jay, loved your post and I agree with you on the part you say we are told not to this and that... I see most of these rules in Australia and, being a latin as I am, I don't think I would enjoy living in such a strict society. I genuinely prefer East Timor. Is more the opposite, which is not good either, as people just load the beaches with litter...
So here is a post about my Wednesday walk... at the beach... on the sunset... very typical, as you know :))

https://steemit.com/wednesdaywalk/@nolasco/wednesday-walk-challenge-by-tattoodjay-the-land-of-extraordinary-and-magic-sunsets

Thanks so much for the sbi share! Wow! I will return as long as I have enough Steem! It's a deal! Cheers, my friend!

·

@nolasco Yeah I think they go overboard with signs telling us what we can and cannot do

LOved your post t really shows how amazing Nature can be :)

·
·

Thanks, my friend! Have a wonderful day!

·
·
·

You to have a wonderful day

·

Yeah. You got an SBI share @nolasco. Now you can see what it's all about! 😁

·
·

Aw, thanks so much, Gillian! You're the next! I guess I have some 400 stem to accomplish! Big hug!

·
·
·

I've already had a couple of shares from the very generous @tattoodjay, @nolasco. Glad to see you've got started on your SBI journey too though. 😊

·
·
·
·

I think its a cool initiative so helping people get started on it is one way to say Thnaks for Wednesday Walk Posts :)

Nice walk, @tattoodjay ! I particularly liked the story of the prisoners of the American revolution. Thank you for translating the text that was written on that sign. I'm starting to like these walks on Wednesdays more and more. I have already learned a lot of new and interesting things from them. Thank you for the idea of such an informative challenge :) . Good luck!

·

@madlenfox And thanks for your visit and support, I am loving all the responses I am getting to the Wednesday walk it slike traveling the world without leaving my desk :)

Thanks for the interesting post @tattoodjay. We have a similar plethora of signs at our local beach, most of which are ignored.

I get particularly irritated by people who take their dogs onto the non dog areas, the idiots who bury their red hot BBQ coals in the pebbles and the cyclists who cycle on the promenade when there is a purpose built cycle path at the side of the road. Grrrrrr!

I'm not sure who's responsible for enforcing the "rules" but whoever it is does a lousy job of it.

Rant over! 😂

Here's my Wednesday Walk post which is a continuation from last weeks. I had so much metal to share I wanted to finish the job! 😁

All of those things would annoy the hack out of me as well, Some signs are warranted and people should follow them, but maybe if there were less signs they would take the time to read them

Nah the people that do all those things you listed would still do it even if there was only one big sign

Just saw your post and tying to comment on it now, which makes me wonder if this reply will go through LOL

·
·

the people that do all those things you listed would still do it even if there was only one big sign

Yep I'm pretty sure they would @tattoodjay. I bet they're the ones who leave all their litter on the beach as well! 😣

·
·
·

OHh yeah, luckily that is generally not to bad at the beach I generally go to which is generally locals, the main beach by the State Park now thats another story

Thank you, @tattoodjay! :)

SO glad you joined and a great entry :)

It would have been a very dramatic photo op if they got stuck in the incoming tide. (evil grin lol)
Shame they messed up the time lapse. Where would we be without signage? :)

·

LOL I like the way you think :)

Not exactly a 5 minute walk and I'll try to take some close up images of thing that otherwise I may miss next time around.
