Signs - WA Day

Lots of signs today from WA Day (Western Australia) which was commemorated on Monday 7th June. 
During that long weekend there was a fun festival at Burswood park, that borders the Swan River and across from Perth's Crown Casino,  to celebrate the day, obviously mostly aimed at the kids.

For other signs from around the world please check Tom's blog.

Signs at the Bootlegger coffee van - "Mac" = macchiato = expresso with frothy milk

  1. Great signs. I had no idea cause my firefighter calendar got stuck to Marty, aka January, as Grace´s calendar got ruined by water on the way.
    Oh, we could need such a sign for cyclists, it´s madness now with the e-bikes and e-scooters... even worse than before.

    1. Thanks Gattina, lockdowns are not easy and I can imagine a lot of people are desperate for a return to normal life.
      Luckily Perth hasn't been too bad, only having short lockdowns once in a while.

  3. ...WA Day looks to be a fun time. The black swan and the WA sign is wonderful. I'm not sure what a "long mac" is though. Thanks Sami for joining the party.

    1. Thanks for hosting Tom. "Mac" is short for Macchiato - an expresso with frothy milk :) Not a coffee drinker, so had to look up what it was, lol.

  4. Wow, the price for soft drinks and water is just about twice what it is here.

    1. Things are expensive here, but our minimum salary is just over double that of the American salary. As of 1st July 2021 minimum wage here is AUD20,33 (US15,20) per hour. Luckily I don't tend to spend money on soft drinks either :)

    2. But I am Canadian, not American, Sami, and the minimum wage here is substantially more than in any state in the USA.

  5. I note you have done as I do, managed to take photos of a probably busy area but without people. Reckless is such an all encompassing word and so open to interpretation. Happy WA WA Day.
