"La Fontaine" is the French word for "The Fountain" which we used to name our Province as the main characteristic of our province we have found is that one of the relaxing sounds of nature is the tunes of water.
Water has a singular power to stimulate the mind, primarily through sight and sound. Essential to life in landscape; water triggers the mind and concentrates meanings. Its surface reflects the landscape it nourishes, increasing this communication; the sound of water further augment meaning and reinforce the communication. The lapping wave, gurgling brook, thunder of waterfalls, splash of trout contribute to the power that water affords to mental images.
The sight, sound, smell and feel of water on skin are stimuli that enrich a sensation of the place.
