Funky Signs: The Four Dangers at Beaumaris Castle

Over the pond in Wales, U.K., a sign at the Beaumaris Castle reminds us to keep track of our children, the floors are slippery, steps are dangerous, and that seagulls attack!

I laughed out loud at this sign because I slipped on a slippery step trying to get away from an aggressive seagull while searching for my kids. In my defense, I didn’t see the sign until after my debacle.
