Yesterday I met up with Lindsay (another Blogger buddy) and his wife Anne, and Gina who I've met previously. They live in Eltham, a lovely suburb of Melbourne, but had not met each other previously. We had lunch at a cafe next to the Eltham Library (yes, I did get there early to borrow some books), and then we went on to Montsalvat, an artists colony that looks like it could be in Europe. Artists in the 1930s gathered here and built an interesting collection of buildings, using materials from houses and buildings that were being demolished in Melbourne. They tried to be self sufficient by growing their own food, and had cows and poultry for milk and eggs. Artists in residence are housed around the place in quaint little cottages which form a village like atmosphere. It was a fabulous day, aided by wonderful weather and great company - my blogger buddies!
