"I have enjoyed greatly the second blooming...
suddenly you find - at the age of 50, say -

that a whole new life has opened
before you."

A Mermaid In Our Midst...

A couple of years ago around this time of the year, our family went to our favorite North Carolina beach destination ~ Oak Island, NC.

While there, my son let his Aunt, Uncle, and cousins transform him into a mermaid on the beach!  He was such a good sport that day, as we all stood around laughing!  I think he looks stunning if I do say so myself!  He has inherited my love of the ocean and coast and I am thrilled with that!

I have always been intrigued by mermaids.  They have always seemed so beautiful and ethereal to me.  I have often thought that I may be "part mermaid" because of just how much I love the ocean!! 

How many of you out there have a "thing" for mermaids? 


  1. I love when they wear the two shell bathing suit top! And I love when they sparkle.

    Your son is precious and the picture is a classic! He would probably flip if he know you posted it here...tee hee

    love ya.



  2. I'm not sure... I don't really know what to make of mermaids. I think it's the half animal half human thing that I'm not quite connecting with.

    Am glad that you discovered Glass Float Junkie. I got a few floats from her, and love them. Sorry, that you missed the giveaway!!

    Have a great weekend!

  3. That picture is too funny! Of course you probably already know about my love affair with Oak Island. Maybe I'll see you there some day! Carla
