Early morning at the Grounds


 

I had to pick up a cake on the weekend, and I booked for the 7.30 slot. It was a rainy morning so people were sparse. 
























I managed to get some reflective shots as the lamps (and fairy lights) were on and sparkling (for #WeekendReflections)






I still hope to get back for dinner in the cushioned Moroccan themed private dining, but not sure if that will actually happen. 













It certainly felt like a magical escape, even though I was just running an errand on a rainy day. 









Sometimes those simple pleasures are enough to make you love life!

  1. Oh Lydia! Such beautiful stylings! I am a very big fan of Moorish/North African designs and architecture and I can see a lot of it from these arches with the curtains! Oh and the lamps, grand! Fairy tale it is!

  3. I have heard so much about The Grounds but it was getting started, I think, as we left Sydney. Thanks for sharing. Those photos are magical. Just as well I have a Sydney Expert in my friendship group! Denyse
