Loosened from the mud, I find myself floating in a world of possibility.

So can you.

Weeki Wachee is totally Wack

So here is a photo of my daughter that I love. I promptly made it the home screen photo on my phone (did I tell you? I've finally entered the 21st century with a smart phone). This photo was taken at Weeki Wachee, a strange little tourist attraction in western Florida.

I remember that my parents took me there when I was about 10 years old. When one of our faerie anniversary friends mentioned it, I thought it would be a great way to get in some Florida fun on the last day of our vacation. Besides all that, the little one loves mermaids.

It was a totally bizarre experience, pretty much terrible especially when the performers took their mermaid tails off. And though the bubbles against the glass during the scene changes were fun, I do not recommend unless you go for some wack sentimental reason.

We have this strange photo of her grandfather sitting next to the mermaid taken over 35 years ago. She's never seen this photo (the grandparents don't remember the photo either) but I swear she enacted almost the same exact pose when seated next to the mermaid - sitting a little bit away from the mermaid and thinking "wtf."


  1. Ha! I do love a quirky/weird/WTF tourist experience, thanks for sharing.

    1. You are welcome! The parking lot was plenty big so I'm sure you could fit Sadie if you decide to visit someday.

  2. I bet your daughter loved it, as weird and quirky as it may have been!

    1. I think you are right, Susan! On that day she seemed a little uncertain but she keep talking about so that is an indication that she loved it.
