Some people claim they are, “a water person.” They gravitate toward water and shorelines in search of a connection to relax the senses and calm the mind. There is something special, soothing and aesthetically pleasing to eye, which is why we see water and beach pictures on calendars, desktop screen savers and promotional advertisements. If you’re an aqua-lover, get ready for the most beautiful sites you’ll ever lay your eyes on.
