Sunday's Seven(teen) Snapshots vol.48

This post is usually my version of a weekly recap, but it's all about Sunday Funday this week.  We decided to hit the road and go exploring for the day in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales (the state where we live).

What's a road trip without car snacks?  Cherries courtesy of a roadside fruit stand. 

In Goulburn, there's The Big Merino aka a big concrete sheep. 

Of course, this is the pic the 8 year old boy wanted. 

Driving through national parks and forests, we saw many a roadkill *sad face*, so we were on the lookout for wildlife. My guy spotted a mob of 'roos.  Let's see if we can get closer....

That's kangaroos for you non-Aussie speaking folks. 

We drove a little further, past a campsite, and found these guys chillin'. 

I took a lot of pictures.  I limited myself in this post. I promise. 

Out for a hike to the Wombeyan Caves...

...and we saw some spectacular views.

I'm in a big cave formed out of limestone. 

The gatekeeper needs a token. 

This guy was pretty impressed and excited while in the caves. 

Stalactites? Stalagmites? One of those two. Or both. 

My guy is stocked full of knowledge and was answering all sorts of questions about how & when things formed.  Thank goodness he knows these things to answer the inquisitive mind of a boy. 

When you try to take a family selfie and the father-in-law gets in the picture but you don't want to be rude and tell him to get out...

When you try to take a couple's selfie and the kid photobombs you and makes the picture a whole lot better. 

Again, there were some spectacular views. 

Hope you have a weekend of adventure or relaxation. Or both!


  1. LOL! I am still cracking up over the pic of your stepson at the rear of the sheep! Hilarious!

  2. I loved seeing all of your snaps of the kangaroos yesterday! And it looks like y'all had quite an adventure!

  3. Bahahaha... as a 30 year old, I would've wanted the same pic!

  4. Great photos! Looks like a beautiful place, but of course all of Australia is beautiful ;)

  5. What a great day! And of course the kid wanted that as his background. Mine would have too. Haha!

  6. That sheep kinda creeps me out. Funny he wanted the pic of the backside. The caves look fun!

  7. So many great pictures I can't decide which I like the most. Looks like you guys had fun :) Those are some big sheep! Lol!

  8. I went to the Southern Highlands (to stay/work on an alpaca farm, actually)! I loved it! I love the giant concrete sheep. I've never seen any of those bizarre roadside attractions like that. I need to find one!

  9. Looks like a great weekend adventure. :)

  10. I love weekend adventures especially ones where you get to tour new places and explore caves!

  11. All the 'Roos were my fave thing when I was in AUS.
    When people get in my photos when I don't want, I'll take the photo with them in it, then be like, ok, now just the the household portrait! Or ask the person you don't want IN the photo to TAKE the photo. :D

  12. I love these pictures, especially the kid photobomb! Haha. I also love that there are random kangaroos just hanging out by the picnic tables.

  13. I'd like to have a concrete sheep in my garden. And some real ones of course!


I love comments, and I enjoy our interactions. I respond via email, but if you're a "no reply blogger", I can't. Don't think I'm ignoring you!
