Being the mother of a toddler, the idea of bodies of water near the house doesn't appeal to me at the moment. But it's fun to dream, right?
The view and sound of rushing water is so relaxing. When my hubby and I worked on a ranch one summer in Jackson, Wyoming there was a creek that ran outside our bedroom window. I can still remember the sound and the beauty it stirred in my heart. Part of my love of the west is because of mountain streams.
