I enjoy the benefits of telecommuting enormously, but sometimes you can feel isolated from your peers and be out of touch with the “human” element of working beside your coworkers. One benefit of my current office location is they have a lake on site and when the weather gets cooler, it is really nice to have a lunch setting at one of the benches overlooking the ducks and water.
I don’t know if the lake is treated or stocked with fish, I do see some people try to fish it and I wonder what kind of pond supplies are necessary to prevent such a small lake in Arizona from becoming completely green with mold. Either way it is one of the nicer cosmetic features of working onsite, and I see many a coworker take a break and jog or walk around the small lake to relax.
