I Want to Be a Mermaid

While on Holiday last month, I revisited Weeki Wachee, one of those old, tatty, endearing, Florida Tourist Venues.

I have a great fondness for Weeki Wachee, for when last visited was 7 or 8 years old and fascinated by the lure of the "mermaids".

Having been one of those fortunate kids to grow up in the 60's and 70's with a backyard pool, my sisters and I practiced our Weeki Wachee somersaults relentlessly.

At my best I could achieve 10 rotations. I was 9.....

...I still want to be a mermaid.
