Glamping on The Grove
We ran through the rain to our tent. It was so welcoming after a rugged, stormy trip. The fairy lights were on, candles were glowing and our brekky hamper for the morning was waiting for us. We popped up to the restaurant but had arrived too late for dinner. The wonderful team welcomed us in anyway, the chef cooked us up a feast and we settled in with a delish bottle of wine. Our escape was off to a great start.
Both mornings we woke to the sound of roosters crowing in the distance, and got up to watch the sunrise over the olive trees. We made ourselves a cup of tea, sat by the water and enjoyed listening to the sounds of the animals nearby – how nice it was to be out of the city.
The team recommended we check out a nearby town called Loch. It was like a small town out of a movie. We stopped at the cutest local grocer to pickup some supplies and headed back to The Grove. We spent the afternoon outside our tent playing board games, relaxing in the sun – ahh.
We wandered around the sculptures on the way up to dinner. The view was breathtaking - that combined with the fine food, it was really an experience to remember. We enjoyed the most of the daylight, and headed back to our tent. We listened to music and chatted over a bottle of wine before falling asleep to the sound of rain on our tent.. heaven!
Sunday morning, we didn’t want to leave. We had brekky in the restaurant and headed back to Loch to visit a renowned op shop and check out the local maker’s stores. We left with a few vintage wares and plants, so we could take a little bit of Gippsland back home with us.
For the first time in a long while, we felt content and relaxed, ready to head back to the city....
