underwater trees

Feels like a swimming pool, and it's a really hot Saturday afternoon and there I was, in one of the cool rooms, as if underwater, or maybe under a tree. Then an Uncle takes out a guitar and sings, 'There are many pretty trees all around the world...'

We had finally reached the edge of the forest, doubtless one of the most beautiful in Captain Nemo's immense realm. He considered it his own, claiming the same rights over it as the first men in the first days of the world. In any case, who was there to dispute his possession of the underwater property? What braver pioneer could come, axe in hand, to cut down the dark undergrowth? Jules Verne 'Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea'
