Post Sydney, we headed South, direction Melbourne. Passed thru countless dairy farms, cattle farms (there's a difference), and coastal towns, but most of all it rained, so much that pretty soon the highway was under water. We spent a couple of nights close to Jervis Bay and Hyams Beach which boasts the whitest sand in the world. Unfortunately everything looked pretty grey to us.
Some of the fun things we did along the way included:
cuddling baby wombats at the Nowra Wildlife Park
running along the Seven Mile Beach, a favorite surfing spot when not raining
spotting kangaroos in the wild whilst driving around the Kangaroo Valley
and just hangin' with friends at their very cool "cabanas" in the quaint town of Berry
but most fun of all was celebrating Z's birthday and seeing her smile.
