Caution Sea Monsters (Watery Wednesday)




 And there it is! Spotted in or around Black Rock, Nova Scotia, on the Fundy Shore.

I did a net search for information on the history of this particular sea monster decoration and found absolutely nothing but if you click on the links below you will find some interesting tales about sea monsters, both real and make-believe.

This type of whimsy and fun is part of the cultural charm of  beautiful Nova Scotia.

  1. How fun! I thought the sign was referring to Dragon Boats which are very popular here in the PNW. I have never seen any dragon decorations like that before. Great shots.

  6. Down here in South Carolina we have the "Lizard Man" instead of the usual bigfoot. Will try to do a post on it sometime.

  9. That's totally TOO CUTE - for which comment my co-workers on the Bridge Project would beat me mercilessly, so I'll just have to trust that they won't see it!

  10. PRAISING WATER

    Water here and water there,
    Water, water everywhere!
    Water to restore the soul,
    Water in a cup or bowl;
    Water gushing in the sink,
    Water clear or dark as ink;
    Water in the stream and bog,
    Water for the newt and frog;
    Water to refresh the wheat,
    Water washing dusty feet;
    Water chasers everywhere
    With loud praises do declare
    That there is no finer thing—
    Water is both queen and king!
