I don't think anything I have seen on Houzz before that has made me want to cry but this one does! It is so beautiful, respectful and fills me with hope. For years we have all seen those ugly retaining walls that suck life from the water and all that lives there. It is time to rethink the way we live and to re-harmonize ourselves with the beauty of the world we live in and this does it for me so well. Thank you very much for sharing.
