The arrival of spring heralds the return of mermaids to the local seaside.
Now we mermaids don’t like the winter so we spend that season in the waters of some distant, warmer land. [it is just a myth that we sleep through it] But with the return of spring we can once again be found frolicking along the shores.
After our long journey, we do tend to look a bit worse for wear and spring is the perfect time to brush off the seaweed and get back into the swim of life. So off to the spa for a bit of pampering. Wonderful treatments that soothe the soul and restore the lustre to our hair and scales.
Really, we are not that different from you humans. We too like to pamper ourselves and prepare for the coming season.
Soaking in a bathtub isn’t always practical,
So sometimes we sneak into the pools of private homes
But wait for the cover of night
With just the stars and moonlight to guide our way
Is also important at the start of the season to get in shape.
We need to get back into those fins girls so off to the gym for a little circuit training
Of course with all that pampering and exercise, sustenance is necessary
So a Little Something
Somewhere relaxing to enjoy our feast
Just like you humans
We like to decorate our ‘earth homes’ too with
Beautiful Textiles, Hues of the Sea, Chandeliers, Mirrors, Seaside Mementos
& Family Portraits complete the look
And at the end of the day
We really are no different from you
We too need to dream and slumber to renew our spirit for the coming days
Although we are similar in some ways, there is of course the one big difference .. our tails.
Some Mermaids do dream of being just like these beauties below.
Dreams don't always turn out like you expect!
