A Cool Dip

Alys-Beach-07AUG12-2329

When we first decided to use small pools in the courtyards of Alys Beach houses like this one, we thought that their prime benefit would be to provide the psychological cooling effect that bodies of water are known to supply. But one of the homeowners later told us that "my courtyard is so private that if I get too warm, I simply take my clothes off and hop in the pool!"
