Love on the Rocks...A Fool's Journey?
I told my brother how I would love living near Byron Bay, but would miss shopping in an
Aldi supermarket, which I have just gotten used to shopping in over the past year.
A few minutes later a big white truck similar to the one pictured above came up behind me and then overtook my car.
When it went past I noticed an Aldi poster on the side of it.
Since we had just left Brisbane I thought it must have been heading for the Gold Coast, but as we would find out after overtaking and being overtaken all the way to Byron Bay, it too was heading to Byron Bay.
And sure enough, when I Googled to see if there was a store in Byron Bay, there was what appeared to me to be a relatively new one in the centre of town, that I wasn't aware of.
So, great news for me, if I ever do move down there, is
that I'll still be able to shop at Aldi.
Well, a week after that Byron trip with my brother these model Aldi trucks were one of the specials, so I just had to get one for my bookcase as a reminder of the truck that followed us all the way down to Byron.
I also bought the two pictured pillows featured in this post because of some personal animal signs I saw on them.
One had a green Luna like moth
(I know it just may be a butterfly, but to me it's a luna moth)
Moth Verses Butterfly Symbolism
and the lady beetle with the letter B
(my surname starts with that letter)
and the French words "JE VOUS AIME" on it
(it means I love you).
The other one had a sparrow
and a hummingbird on it.
And on my next visit to Bangalow /Byron Bay I went looking for a morning coffee and a bite for breakfast before heading off to the Byron Bay Writer's Festival and found out that the little take away coffee joint in the main street of Bangalow is named Sparrow
(something I didn't know when I purchased my pillow from Aldi a few days before).
|B is for Bangalow and Byron Bay?|
All signs seem to be pointing me there, I feel.
