Soldier and Family Support Center Garden

The "Soldier and Family Support Center" is located across the street from our hotel, and next door to the Center for the Intrepid. I was attracted to it because I could see the windmill on the property whenever I came through the gate:


But once I got over there to take a few shots, I found a lovely desert-scaped garden


with lots of interesting plants

Prickly Pear

and even some fauna

Dragon Fly.

The windmill pumped water for a koi pond that had been placed in a large tin tub, something resembling perhaps a watering trough for cattle

koi pond

complete with lilly pads.

A peaceful sanctuary for people facing hard times.
