CJ's Adventures In Ponding

     Preface: We have discovered that a pond is never completed. It is blanketed in its own aura,
thrives on a life force of  its own, and amazingly it continually surprises you with
its constant changes, however subtle or impressive they may be.   joann 5/2001


Tourist Information   Admission: Free. 24/7 Please do not allow children throw rocks into the pond
or overfeed fish. We hope you have fun, and find your visit to be a delightful one. The Management
