Koi pond at Fort Ilocandia [Watery & Outdoor Wednesday]

@ mirandablue
A small pond under the glass-topped atrium near the lobby of Fort Ilocandia Resort Hotel in Laoag City, Ilocos Norte.  There is a cascading waterfall on the left side of the pond but it was not working when we visited.  Across this pond are cafe and restaurants, and the hotel's shopping arcade.

if it were up to me, every public place/mall must have a koi pond. it just gives the place serenity.

Your photos are beautiful just like where you live. I just love looking at your posts each night before bed. The goldfish look like they are about to jump right out of the pond. The colors in these shots are so vibrant. G.

The ripples of the water made by the koi, feels music to me. Such a nice place to be yourself and meditate.
