street signs - Second

Sauble Beach

Not all the streets here are named for numbers, which I personally think shows a singular lack of imagination. Here is a map of the area. You can see that Second St S does not go all the way through and becomes a dead end. This is a heavily treed area full of small cottages, some winterized into permanent homes, some seasonal rentals. The town stretches along the beach in a north south direction and as a result there are no streets designated east or west. Only the numbered streets that are north or south of Main Street have a designation.

  1. Imagine giving your address as being on the corner of second and second.

  2. I wonder how many times the mail is delivered to the wrong address!

  3. We used to live near a town that had street/avenue names like that. I think it's worse than unimaginative...somebody tells you they live on second. And you always drive to the wrong one.

  4. I like that both second ave and second st intersect each other. I've never seen that happen before.

  5. I use to live on Second Street. Now it is just across the street from my house, but in a different town.

  6. On second thought .... go north. I have the love-hate relationship with these streets! Happy travels!

  7. Unbelievable. You would really need to ensure an address you may be seeking was worded correctly.

  10. Since I rarely pay attention to whether it's 'street,' 'road', 'drive' or 'avenue', I would certainly be confused!
