Road trip turns cold

Since our arrival in the Southern Highlands it has turned really cold.  With top temps of 13 deg with a wind chill factor of a lot less it has been a struggle to keep warm.

I knew it would be cool, I just wasn’t prepared for how cold.  I’ve trawled the Op Shops looking for suitable clothes for the weather.

I managed to find a coat, jeans and scarf.  Yesterday I was dressed entirely in second hand clothes apart from my undies, even my bra was a hand me down from a friend!!!! 

Jordan has the photographic evidence on his Ipod, I will have to do a fashion blog when we get home.

After a walk through the national park we continued into Kangaroo Valley.

P1050712 I remember this one lane bridge from a previous visit.

P1050709 Coffee and chocolate was the perfect body warmer.

Today we tried to get away from the cold, and so we headed coastward to Nowra.  The wind was lighter, without the ice.

We stopped at this little Antique & Collectable shop on our way to Nowra.

It was cold once more out at the light house.

This brings another day to a close.  It’s nice and warm here inside the van and we are very comfortable.

Thanks for visiting,

What a wonderful journey you are having. Shame you got caught out with the cold. We were the oposite on our little adventure. I packed for the cold and wet ( as in Auckland) and we had 3 beautiful hot sunny days. Your photos are fab!
