We're heading out to the Castlemaine area this afternoon, to get some fresh country air, see if there's any water in the dam (fat chance!), and for a change we'll be there on Saturday morning. We can go to the local vegetable market then (lots of other stuff too) and might even make it to the library before it closes. No, I just can't keep away from libraries. The Castlemaine Library is in a 19th century Mechanics Institute building, and is always a pleasure to visit. There's a link to it on my Libraries I Love web page (link in the left column).
Castlemaine is our spiritual home and one day we may even live there. My goal: small unit with own small garden, level walk to shops and library. The Bread Nazi however would like to have a garden on our 10 acres, land already ravaged by goldminers, and then cattle grazing. To show how bad the soil is, it could only feed 4 head of cattle. And of course no water, no power. Nup, not for me at the age we'll be if and when we decide to move to the country.
