Mermaid Camp at Weeki Wachee

16 Jun

So this weekend I attended MERMAID CAMP at Weeki Wachee, and I wrote the following extremely informative article about the experience, which you should obviously read immediately:

*Last Weekend I Went to Mermaid Camp*

Because I am very generous, I am including some extra photos here:

Here are all us campers in mermaid garb:

And one of me in a rather odd yet deeply glamorous mermaid pose:

And here are us campers and former mermaids after a day of swimming with a manatee:

And my hostess, Weeki Wachee artist-in-residence Julie Komenda:

And here is camper Jaclyn with our manatee best friend:

Also, a couple days after camp Ms. Barbara Wynns took me out to Three Sisters Spring in Crystal River for more mermaidliness and manatees. Here’s a shot of the two of us under water:

And here is me trying to pose in a semi-elegant manner and also not drown:

The end.
