|the entrance to Eltham Valley Pantry, Eltham NSW|
As anyone who knows me (either virtually or in real life) can tell you, I adore the Northern Rivers region of NSW. Mr P. and I visit often, to catch up with friends and have a great time, including eating all the amazing produce down there. We recently went down for the Sample Food Festival, and tried to have lunch here at Eltham Pantry but to no avail. Sadly they were booked out that day. Ah well, next time!
It is beautiful countryside, with stunning scenery, and lots of interesting and arty people, who have a keen interest in an alternative way of life. The area packs a huge punch, and way above its weight. (not sure if my metaphors are the right ones, but you know what I mean folks!)
Mr P. and I have been visiting this region for quite some years now. I have vivid memories of driving down at the crack of dawn one Sunday morning to go to the Channon market. This was before the new bits of highway and tunnels were put in, so it used to take hours to get there! I bought a glass paperweight from a hippie dude who was wearing just shorts with no underwear. He was sitting there legs akimbo. Let me tell you, it was all hanging out! And not a pretty sight:=)
