I got up at 8:00 and read, washed up, and dressed. I checked in with Bruce downstairs in his store, then I walked around the neighborhood and over to Elwood Beach at Port Phillip. It's quite beautiful with lots of upscale young soccer moms jogging along the paths in the neighborhood...many pushing a baby carriage or following a dog on a leash. I bought a map of Melbourne at the news stand for $10.00. I checked in at the store again with Bruce then took off walking in the other direction. I wasn't able to figure out exactly how the public transportation works to get into the city.

It turned into a beautiful, warm sunny day. Maureen picked me up at my room at 11:30. We picked up a lovely lady named Mary and then a lady I met at the meeting last night named Avriel. We had the most delicious raw lunch at a place called the Vegi Bar. I ordered the Raw Falafel Wrap. It was excellent! We all had a raw passion fruit dessert. Superb!

To finish off the afternoon, we went to a place called Monk's for a juice. Not everyone can find Monk's. You have to be shown how to get there by someone that knows. It's back behind all the other shops. I had an orange juice. It was a fun day.

To health and happiness.
