Had to smile when we spotted this stop sign with a political edge in Fremantle.
We recently noticed this sign post overlooking Perth’s Swanbourne beach, in the Allen Park bushland. It helpfully points out that Fremantle is south, Rottnest Island is west, Perth is east, and the North Pole is just 13539km to the north.
We saw this cute koala sign as we drove to the New South Wales town of Gunnedah a few years back. Gunnedah calls itself “The Koala Capital of the World”, but we didn’t expect to see any of them in the town. Until we went for a walk in a patch of woodland on the edge of town and saw …
We noticed this interesting set of alphabet letters during our recent visit to Long Beach, California. What do you think they are used for? You can actually find the answer in our previous blog entry. Yes, they are used to put the signage on theatres – in this case, the historic Edison Theatre in Long Beach.
The theatre was being used as the headquarters for planning the POW! WOW! mural Fest, which was just about to start when we visited Long Beach a week ago.
We stopped to photograph some of the town signs along the Great Southern Highway during our trip to Albany last month. They often describe the character of the town, or some historical connection – like miners heading for the goldfields from Broomehill, pushing their tools and belongings in a wheelbarrow.
But the tiny town of Popanyinning took a different tack, making fun of its long name. The locals just opt out and call it Popo (pronounced pop-oh).
Last week we reported that strange messages keep appearing in the Swan River at Fremantle.
Yesterday we crossed the old traffic bridge again, and noticed that there is another new message. We have been wondering who arranges the stones into these cryptic comments – and it looks like the river is asking the same question.
