Sign of a Good Day

I just had to post this picture on my blog! I think we came across possibly one of the cutest road signs ever this weekend on our day trip to North Stradbroke Island. After passing many kangaroo and koala crossing signs (despite my protests), Paul finally agreed to stop at this one. We'd never seen one like it before. Obviously someone in the road department there has a great sense of humour!

Our trip to "Straddie" on Saturday involved a 45 minute ferry ride from Cleveland. While they do charge you for the ferry (unlike the free ferry ride to Nelson, B.C. that my daughter - a true Scot - still raves about), it is well worth the money. The Gorge Walk was so beautiful that Jack didn't even complain once during the 1.5 km hike. For a kid who gets tired riding his bike 3 houses down, that's saying a lot!

Throw in the white sand beaches, seeing a sea turtle, and the best passion fruit gelato that I've ever tasted, and I'd say that the kangaroo crossing was just the first sign of a great day!


  1. Good one on Memoirs of a Geeky Girl - it helps a lot!

    We clearly share similar parenting experiences and views.
    I've been reading one that I'm hooked on -
    I have a feeling you'd get a lot out of it.

    Incredible job on your blog; keep it up.


  2. Looks like Kanga and Roo. Perhaps you were close to the Hundred Acre Woods. Throw a few Pooh sticks for us!

  3. Soooo cute, don't see anything like that around Calgary, except maybe a watch out for Grizzly-who-wants-to-eat-your-face-off kind of sign. Hey, I got an e-mail from another friend in Calgary who knows you and says hi - Michelle Flick. Small world eh? Hope all is well down under!
