It was a mild 19 degree morning in Trentham this morning at 6.30 am.
Not bad for an autumn morning - not sure how I'll cope mid-winter when we get snow and below freezing mornings.
We have a small local group of cyclists in Trentham that I've met up with. We leave from the local Post Office corner. This morning's ride was a quick 35 km circuit that brought us back to our local cafe for coffee. Trentham is an amazing community. At 6.30 am I heard noises from our Post Office. Lizzy who runs the PO was at work sorting the morning mail. At 8.00 am when we were having coffee, she did a delivery to the owner Mel of Chaplin's Cafe - how is that for service?
While enjoying our cuppa, we had Barry, David, Greg, Tony all stopped by for a chat.
Geeez, I love this life here.
BTW, I had to go to the Melbourne CBD for a lunch with friends - so many people - so many contrasts. Suits walk briskly be homeless sitting on the side walk. It was great to meet up with my city mates for lunch but I was relieved to get back on the train to Trentham.
|This building was once one of the many hotels in Trentham when gold and timber brought prosperity to Trentham. Today it is an antique shop.|
Today there are two hotels - one is only open from Thursday to Sunday.
