Hope you enjoyed the grand opening of the PODS, Loon Foundation, Tranquility Gardens last Sunday. Grand indeed, with the spectacular waterfall, tiled plaza, wall of words, slopes dotted with young, arbutus trees grown from seed, fantastic live music and the unveiling of their submersible! I had to pinch myself. Was this oasis really in downtown Madeira Park? WOW!
