Last mid-year holiday, my family and I rented a cottage in Atlanta. My parents were trying to get away from the busy city life, so we went to a secluded place in the forest. The journey was a long and tiring one. It took three hours from the heart of Atlanta until we finally reached the villa.
However, the breathtaking view suddenly recharged us all. It was a two-story stone house with some glass walls. The house faced a natural waterfall. We could see the waterfall through the glass wall and we could even hear the calming sound of the waterfall from the house.
After we put our luggage, we did not even explore the house. We went out for a walk immediately to see the beautiful surroundings. Right outside the door, we found hiking trails. Along the path, we could hear the relaxing sounds of birds chirping and water streaming. We met some friendly people, too. They were either fishing or kayaking nearby. Like us, they looked happy and serene.

A Man and his son were once going with their Donkey to market. As they were walking along by its side a countryman passed them and said: "You fools, what is a Donkey for but to ride upon?"
So the Man put the Boy on the Donkey and they went on their way. But soon they passed a group of men, one of whom said: "See that lazy youngster, he lets his father walk while he rides."
So the Man ordered his Boy to get off, and got on himself. But they hadn't gone far when they passed two women, one of whom said to the other: "Shame on that lazy lout to let his poor little son trudge along."
Well, the Man didn't know what to do, but at last he took his Boy up before him on the Donkey. By this time they had come to the town, and the passers-by began to jeer and point at them. The Man stopped and asked what they were scoffing at. The men said: "Aren't you ashamed of yourself for overloading that poor donkey of yours and your hulking son?"
The Man and Boy got off and tried to think what to do. They thought and they thought, till at last they cut down a pole, tied the donkey's feet to it, and raised the pole and the donkey to their shoulders. They went along amid the laughter of all who met them till they came to Market Bridge when the Donkey getting one of his feet loose, kicked out and caused the Boy to drop his end of the pole. In the struggle the Donkey fell over the bridge, as his fore-feet being tied together he was drowned.
"That will teach you," said an old man who had followed them. "Please all, and you will please none."

Bull sharks have a very sturdy body, and have a blunt, rounded snout, giving the Bull shark its name. Bull sharks have quite small eyes as compared to other carcharhinid sharks, which might mean that vision is not a very important hunting tool for this species, which is usually found in muddy waters. Bull sharks are usually pale to dark grey above, and their undersides are white. In young Bull sharks, the fins have black tips which turn to a dusky colour as they grow.
The Bull shark is found in tropical and subtropical coastal waters worldwide as well as in many river systems and some freshwater lakes. The Bull shark likes to live in shallow coastal waters less than 30 meters deep, but ranges from 1 – 135 meters. It is the only shark species which is found in freshwater, and can spend a long periods of time in such environments.
Even though humans are not on their diet, Bull sharks have been known to be very aggressive towards humans. This shark can be a danger to people since many people don't have the knowledge that Bull sharks can be found in rivers and freshwater. Almost all of the close to shore shark attacks on humans have been caused by this species. They are very territorial and they will attack anything that gets into their environment. They have been known to bite horses and other animals that come too close to the water.
