Chook house grand opening date confirmed.
It has been a busy few weeks for me with lots of photos taken but as they are on my tablet, I'm not sure how to transfer them to my desktop computer so I can post them on to my blog. I think I can post them directly to the blog from the tablet, but it is messy (for me anyway) and I'd rather not waste time on doing that. I went to Montsalvat for lunch with a friend last week. I'd been to the cafe and gallery a few times in the past year or so, but never had the time to have a good look around. Ken and I went there when we first moved to Eltham 35 years ago, and we didn't think much of it at all, as it was really run down and grubby looking. But since then there have been a lot of changes in managers and funding, and today it is a wonderful place to visit. Fourteen acres of land with building dotted around - chapel, halls, galleries, studios, artists residences. Stunning views from the grounds, as well as vegetable gardens and other items that made the commune self sustaining in its early years. We spent two hours wandering around and I took about 20 photos using my tablet, but I haven't figured out how to post them here. The previous weekend we went out for dinner at the Diamond Creek Tavern for Louise's birthday on Saturday night, then on Sunday we joined Sandra for her birthday at the Studley Park Boathouse.
