Manatee to Mermaids

July is the perfect month to visit a number of Florida attractions. From Snooty the Manatee to Mermaids, there will be plenty to do.

The Orlando Sentinel has all the details in an article by reporter Matt Mauney.

"The world's oldest manatee in captivity celebrates another birthday, along with former mermaids making a comeback and new exhibits opening at museums across the Sunshine State."

The article includes 48 photos from Weeki Wachee Springs, both recent and from years gone by.

Mermaid Photo Exhibition
Mermaid Lori Pappajohn

Mermaids Are Real is the name of a photo art exhibition that showcases mermaiding around the world. The exhibit is the work of mermaid Lori Pappajohn, and it is scheduled to open in New Westminster, British Columbia this weekend.

"But if you happen to spot a mermaid's tail splashing out in Vancouver's English Bay or in a local pool, don't be too alarmed."

Swim on over to CBC News British Columbia for the full story on the photo exhibition. You will also enjoy the six photos included in the article.

Best Books on Mermaids

Julia Eccleshare, The Book Doctor, shares her favorite mermaid themed books for children and teens in a recent article at The Guardian. The Little Mermaid is included, of course, but what do you suppose her other selections might be?

"Stories about mermaids seem to abound from all countries where there is a long shoreline."

And what are your favorite mermaid stories? The Book Doctor would love to hear from you.

Best wishes and starfishes,
