Bus Tour to Waterford Gardens

The bus left Winter Ranch at 5 PM for Waterford Gardens.  Waterford Gardens is an assisted living facility located in Mission Texas at 1522 East Griffin Parkway, between Stewart and Bryan roads.  When we arrived we were treated to chili and cornbread.  That was followed by dessert cakes and home-made fudge.  We were also treated to some egg nog and other beverages including hot chocolate.

When we arrived a few of the lights were on in the gardens.  Then after most people had finished eating, the lights all went on in the gardens  It is a dazzling display.
