Even though we have been coming here for many years, we still find new things to do, new festivals to attend, new restaurants to try, and many treasures at flea markets and park sales. We appreciate the warm welcome we receive every year when we return to the Rio Grande Valley.
We stay at La Floresta near Mercedes, a small park where the residents are like one big family. With its par three golf course, many activities revolve around golf. But it is only one of many activities that bring residents together for fun and laughter.
Connie Kolynchuk, from Selkirk, Manitoba, makes par for the team, while Casey Tippet, Sallisaw, Missouri, looks on.
