The calf turned out to be a more significant issue than I'd hoped; there was some discomfort walking on it last night, and although that part of it was improved somewhat this morning, I didn't consider running. I was a bit apprehensive riding, too, when it was a bit uncomfortable pushing off, but it was fine once moving (and better later in the day). Still generally avoided hills on a loop through La Trobe (where the Sunday market is back), Reservoir and Coburg. Very pleasant morning to be out (and various pieces of good news during the morning didn't hurt, either).
This is (hopefully) the last day of having to stick to local exploration so I did a bit more of it, looking at some of the more obscure approaches to the north side of the Yarra between Eltham and Warrandyte. The back blocks of Eltham have something of a reputation as a hippies' hangout and in Saturday's Age I was reading a piece about an artists' commune on a property out there (not sure if I passed it or not) in the early 1970s which had all the features you might expect of an artists' commune in the early 1970s (especially the fornication and the mind-altering substances). Finished up this excursion by hanging out for a while in the park next to the railway trestle bridge, which a couple of years ago was the unlikely venue of a demo by the United Patriots Front or some other such outfit (although they were considerably outnumbered by locals giving renditions of "say it loud, say it clear, Nazis are not welcome here" and other such classics).
On the evidence of today, a substantial proportion of Melbourne was spending their last day of relative captivity mowing grass.
