July Theme Day: a sign with...NO...

Larchmont Manor Beach regulations...
25 years ago I was shocked, now I am used to it...
I guess the only thing left to do is lie down on a beach towel!!!

Quelques instructions sur la plage de Larchmont Manor..
Il y a 25 ans cela m'avait surprise, je me suis habituée..
En résumé , a part rester allongé sur une serviette...
le reste est tres limité..

If you want to look at other "NO" signs
in other towns around the world
Have a look here.

Oh Goody! I'm the very first comment :)

From all those prohibitions, I think you're right that just parking on your towel is the only permitted activity. The sign should also point out that there is "no shade" :)

Wow! Are you allowed to even be there. MB

Oh là ! Que de NO sur cette plage !
Alors, si je comptrends bien, on az le droit que de se baigner et de la fermer !!!

YES! A good shot! ;-)

Beaucoup d'interdit, mais ici on n'est pas oblige de reboucher les trous de la plage ;o)). Oui cela rappelle les panneaux d'interdictions des parcs New Yorkais, de vrais romans. Heureusement tu peux quand même d'allonger et profiter de la plage ;o)

Got it loud and clear

et dire qu'en 68 il était interdit d'interdire.

Même le parasol n'est pas autorisé en position ouverte et/ou plantée

est-ce qu'il est possible de faire le bain?

reminds me of the father ted episode where he goes to the beach and there's a no cursing sign so someone calls him a grass hole and other non- curses. there's signs prohibiting many things. i forgot to look for a new "no" sign.

No talking to the lifeguard - so how do you tell him your fiend is drowning!

Il est vrai que les interdictions fleurissent un peut partout, le pire c'est que tout le monde à une bonne raison. Le mot d'ordre de 68 n'était il pas il est interdit d'interdire.
Très bonne semaine.

Hi Marie-Noyale,

The bees are back in Brookville, Ohio. I hope for the rest of the year at least. I even got one on my Better Blog Writing post today. LOL

I see you found an adorable No sign. It takes all the NO's in. And I don't see any folks.

Isn't it almost funny to think of adult people scurrying around their communities taking pictures of signs. And if somebody had asked what that is all about and you said a sign with "no" on it, they might... well. It is kind of funny.

No nothing, was the first thing that came to my mind!

Poor children!

Excellent photo and composition! I can live with the "no radios" restriction. Nothing like having someone else's music imposed on you at the beach.

Happy Theme Day!

tout d'abord superbe photo et ensuite application démésurée du principe de précaution : peut-on quitter cet endroit?

USelaine July 1, 2008 at 2:18 PM  

Most of these make no sense to me, and it seems the children would not require supervision if they can't do anything anyway.

Marie July 1, 2008 at 2:53 PM  

Wow, c'est une super photo pour un sujet bien difficile ce mois-ci. J'ai encore oublié de m'inscrire !

Marie-Noyale, je ne suis plus retournée à NY depuis l'autre samedi. Je vais y retourner cette semaine. L'ami chez qui je loge rentre d'Afrique dimanche. La semaine prochaine ça sera plus simple pour moi d'aller à NY puisqu'il sera là pour s'occuper des courses, des animaux et pour m'emmener à la gare (j'ai sa voiture mais il est difficile de trouver une place de parking pour prendre un train off-peak :-)) J'espère donc vous voir à partir de la semaine prochaine. Bon 4 juillet à vous.

love your photos, beautifully done!

Marie-Noyale, Great shot and great lighting behind the lifeguard's chair! I worked as a lifeguard for 4 summers during college days, and I had forgotten how long the list gets until I saw your and Jenny's signs today. I disagree with the masks and snorkels ban, and the ball play rule. No reason for them if parents are attentive and the guard is too. And since iPods. . .when have you ever seen a kid with an audible radio. That's a prohibition against the Boomer generation, for sure! :-)
Great post, and so colorful. Could be a postcard!

Knowing what I do about the water in the sound, No might be the best suggestion. I grew up in NJ where we went to "The Shore." The first time I swam in the Caribbean, it ruined it for me forever. My husband grew up in Harrison, and used to "swim" at the beach at Playland. They called it the Polio Pit. Your photo, however, makes it look positively charming. And, yes, your right. People do fish better without crowds, and we're actually very happy to be alone! I really enjoy your photos and comments.

Wow, Good that is dificult to find No signs in Lisbon!!

Clueless in Boston July 1, 2008 at 8:41 PM  

Maybe they should add "Just Go Home!" LOL.

I love your sense of humor about all the no's. Reminds me of a song when I was young..signs signs. Love your photos.

Fabulous. Beautiful photo to illustrate Theme day. I'm transported to this scene.
