Stick Figures in Peril and More Signs of Danger

I’ve stolen the title of this post from a Flickr Group which features ‘Stick Figures in Peril’. The best part of joining this group is all the comments as people try to guess the meaning of the signs.

Wales

An acorn on the footpath marker indicates that this is part of the Pembrokeshire Coast Trail; I like the little warning not to take a header off the crumbling cliffs.
