Gooderstone Water Gardens 01-06-2013

Billy Knights, a retired farmer began designing and creating the Water Gardens in 1970 in his 70th year. The site was a damp meadow which became too wet for cattle to graze. Mr Knights’ son jokingly suggested he should have a water garden, which prompted him to draw out plans (on the back of a piece of wallpaper) and he soon had machines digging out the ponds and waterways. He worked on his garden with love and enthusiasm until he died aged 93. For over 20 years the gardens had been open to the public.
Both Billy and his wife Florence loved their gardens and sharing them with others. With this in mind and as a tribute to her parents Coral Hoyos began restoration in April 2002. Having been unattended and closed for five years, the Gardens had become quite derelict. However they were re-opened again in June 2003, with a new car park, refurbished tea-room / gallery, a toilet for disabled people and an 8 acre nature trail. There has since been the addition of a bird hide and a new plant sales area, bamboo grove, scented arbour and rustic roundhouse.
To help you find your way round, the bridges are numbered and when you have walked enough rest on one of the many benches provided, or perhaps visit the tearoom in the south-east corner where you can enjoy a relaxing cup of freshly brewed tea or coffee, soft drinks, ice-creams and delicious home made cakes.
Day 052 (Year 7) 024/365 AND Day 2245: Dosta Theater: “The Trip to Bountiful”

Today I hosted The Rock Church Senior Adult Ministry Luncheon at the country club. We had 14 in attendance who enjoyed listening to my trainer talk about the importance of fitness. We also enjoyed a delicious buffet meal with soup, salad, meat/vegetables, and peach cobbler with ice cream. It’s hard to believe, but I didn’t take any photos there because I was concerned with the meeting details.
I had to quickly drive over to a Methodist church which has an ACTO program, "Alzheimer Care-Givers’ Time Out." The line dancers from the Tuesday class at the Senior Center performed for about 40 minutes for the Alzheimer clients at the church.
After a brief time at home, I drove downtown and met Gerry & Becky for supper at The Bleu Cafe. My fish and shrimp tacos were delicious. Then we attended the play, "The Trip to Bountiful," at The Dosta Theatre. One of our friends played a lady in the bus station.
