From gardens to fish heads…the Grove at its finest

Gifford Lane Art Stroll, 2009

If you live in Coconut Grove and stayed inside this weekend you missed out on two incredible events that showcased the Grove at its finest.  

On Saturday I took my wife and daughter to the Coconut Grove Garden Tour hosted by The Villagers Inc.  It began with a tour of The Kampong and then allowed access to some of the most beautiful gardens in Coconut Grove.  All of them were incredible but two were absolutely spectacular.  If you went on the tour, you know exactly which two I am talking about.   Unfortunately photos were not allowed at any of the homes.

On the other end of the spectrum was the Gifford Lane Art Stroll I went to on Sunday.  I popped a beer, sat next to a friend of mine and chatted with all of the Grovers passing by.  It was a mixture of funky art, music, food, alcohol, fish heads, jugglers and nice people.

What more could you ask for in a weekend?
