Koala thumbs up

When we arrived at Waves on Christmas day, we turned on the TV and saw the Wiggles. It wasn't their show, but rather a commercial promoting Save the Koala. And they kept saying 'koala thumbs up!' while holding up their thumb and pointer (index finger), since koalas have, well, two thumbs. So that became the official seal of approval for our holiday. See something you like? Koala thumbs up! It was our week-long running joke, 100 percent Australian, now available for your enjoyment.

Me at seal rocks. This was the only incident of the koala thumbs down. I was really bummed about the seals.
