The signs posted throughout the Bahamas are a good source of entertainment.  There does not seem to be much regulation, but usually they are kept to a small scale.
There is an actual Bocce Ball field (Bahamian style) that sees some activity.  Usually the players are fortified by Strawberry Monkey Rum drinks.

Some of the commercial signs are quite nice.  This place had great coffee and quiche.
Others are less formal:

But, their food and drinks were still good.
As the sign indicates, this place had fallen on hard times:
Too bad we missed it.
Some of the signs are very official looking:
Even if enforcement is somewhat lacking.
We wondered what some bicyclist had done to prompt this sign in front of the police station.

This sign was still hanging in January.  Maybe they mean next October.  It’s island time, mon.
In many places, this is about as close as you get to a street sign.
And, if you think a corner needs a stop sign, put one up.
Plaques honoring event and people are very popular in the Bahamas.
Signs that have gone missing in the U.S. end up in the Bahamas.
Some signs could be simpler, i.e., we are open on Tuesday from 10 – 2.
And, other signs could be more sensitive.
