The coast at Portholland is rugged and picturesque, but dangerous for both cars and hikers …



those warning signs are important … I think the red box holds equipment for rescue … (image from Street View)

    • Hi Robin. I am going more slowly from now on. It would be a poor way to get a glimpse of the ocean! Jane

    • Hi! Thanks! Yes, if you keep driving too fast, over the edge you go…. Jane

  3. I think all the warning signs are cute…. best story was the moose crossing story. The town put up a moose crossing sign by the school because there had been sightings and crossings at that point. One concerned mother approached city council and said “why could you not have put the sign down the road from the school so the moose could cross there” True story… people are dumb. We have the rock falling signs here all over and the roads equally as narrow and close to the edge. Scary. And yes real bikers try to share the road with the cars

    • Hi ‘Sue’. Good laugh!!! I wonder where you heard that story??? We have rock falling signs too, and we saw lots of them in the Rockies of course. Jane
