Is there a mermaid next door? Perhaps YOU are the mermaid next door!
In this article from San Francisco Magazine, we meet Mermaid Atlantis, the founder of the NorCal Narwhals Mer Pod.
"Most discover the pod through word of mouth, though the national merfolk community is larger than one might think."
If you have been reading this blog for a while, you can begin to appreciate just how large the national merfolk community has become. Not to mention the world merfolk community!
This week, the Daily Mail UK has a story on a Florida hotel, so something must be up!
The Sheraton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort in south Florida is now offering mermaid wedding packages, complete with tails. This is great for merfolk that never want to get out of the water!
"The pair are assisted by their own mermaid officiant who will help guide them through the ceremony in the deep end of the pool which is approximately eight feet deep."
Take the plunge, but first read the article by Suzannah Hills.

Mermaids and Shoes
One does not often see the words 'mermaid' and 'shoe' in the same sentence. In this article by Sarah Harrison Smith, we are introduced to two mermaid tales with unique titles.
The first story is “The Mermaid and the Shoe” by K.G. Campbell. Minnow lives beneath the sea with her father, King Neptune, and her 49 sisters. Unlike her many sisters, little Minnow just doesn't fit in.
The second tale is “The Mermaid’s Shoes” by Sanne te Loo. In this story we meet Mia, a little girl of about 6 that returns home from a beach vacation, yearning for the sea.
