Just Us Folks Here

A couple of days ago, I made a left turn off of South Beach onto Benson Road only to be faced with a big square orange sign saying "Road Closed."   So, I could go back home and try this trip some other day, or I could turn around and go the other way on South Beach, eventually getting myself to Tyee.

Now, anybody who lives here would know exactly what to do in that circumstance without the help of bystanders or signage.  But the fact is, everyone here doesn't live here and that Benson is one of the three major cross streets.  So, it's kind of funny that it didn't occur to anyone that a stranger might come up to that 'Road Closed' sign and not know exactly what to do.  That's funny in a humorous way, not a strange way.

Kind of like Richmond side streets. Only those who live in the same block would know what to do if the road was closed; even other Richmonders outside the block would have no clue. :)

Also saw a car get pulled over by the Whatcom County sheriff over on Benson just off Tyee last week. The car had a BC plate, and the driver looked quite surprised that he could get a ticket in Point Roberts! haha
