Here’s a photo essay of the overwhelming (hand-made) “Signs of heart-felt appreciation” from local folks for the men and women fighting Big Sur’s terrible Soberanes Fire in July and August 2016.
I found more than 100 signs on Carmel Valley Road alone. Some are elaborate works of art, some small, some huge, some clever, and one is a sculpture of a fireman. Some thank those who have saved animals and the helicopter crews.
From simple to snazzy, be advised the sheer volume and sincere sentiment might inspire tears.
You are most welcome to comment to let us all know which are your favorites; or maybe you would like to give some of the artists some well-deserved recognition.
(And if you know of a nice or heart warming sign I’ve missed – please post a photo or let me know where it is .)
With best wishes for all who have lost something to the fire,
Here’s another story about the Thank you signs from the local newspaper.
