In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the desire to find solace in the comfort of our homes has grown exponentially. For those lucky enough to own a second home, their escape is usually found in some rustic setting, close to nature, often near a body of water.
As you lie in your
lounge chair and listen to the gurgling of a small stream and the
chirping of some nearby birds, the sun's rays are luring you into a nap.
The light touch of one of the plants near the water's edge tickles your
leg and you're awakened out of your
lazy daydreaming. You get up to look at the water and are greeted by
several colorful koi fish that dart playfully around beneath you.
