I thought I’d revive my ‘Snapshots’ and take an opportunity to participate in the Weekly Photo Challenge. It’s a nice way to showcase some of my favorite photos that might not otherwise make their way on to the blog, plus, once I saw the theme for this week – Big, I knew just which photo I’d use:
Several months ago, Alex and I took a weekend road trip to Canberra to check out Australia’s capital. On the way back we thought we’d stop off for a quick coffee and who should we run into but The Big Merino. He’s is a 15.2 meter high (49.8 foot) stud ram that stands proudly as a monument to Australia’s fine wool industry.
The Big Merino houses a gift shop and an Australian Wool Innovation exhibition, and if you’d like to see it for yourself, its located just off the expressway on Hume Street in Goulburn.
