    The only city of live mermaids

    April 29, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Visited Weeki Watchee state park and watched the mermaids show.

    They did Hans Christian Andersen's Little Mermaid. It totally wasn't a Disney version rip-off at all. The Little Mermaid's friend was a Jamaican turtle for starters, not a crab.Read more

    Day 13 - Weeki Wachi

    June 23, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    We got up, packed and ate in Chasshowtzka. We hit the road for 25 miles to Weeki Wachi. We were hoping to take a tandem kayak down the river, but we hadn't made a reservation so all they had left was a canoe and a few stand-up paddle boards even though it was early. We chose the canoe. I couldn't go paddle boarding for 5.5 miles. Dad paddled while I took tons of pictures. We saw a river otter, some kind of water snake, birds, fish, fish, more fish, and dragonflies were everywhere. There weren't any manatees in sight and that bummed me out. Once in a while we would pull over and go swimmy swimmy. We got taken back in a van that had a trailer for the boats. We saw some peacocks at the state park and we got a lunch at one of the restaurants that was also in the park. We finished and got in line for the mermaid show. It was packed and after seeing the show I understood why. Fish Tails was awesome and I loved how they spun in a circle. They had it to music so they were lip singing the words underwater. I was really glad we went. We finished our miles when we arrived at the Sun 'n Fun in Sarasota. We did the usual swim, shower, then it was time for dinner so we crossed the street to a smokehouse. The food was good but when they brought out the receipt for dad to sign, the credit card he gave them to swipe wasn't inside. According to dad it is customary to return it after they swipe it. We went to talk about it and it turns out that they lost it. Great, just what we need. Luckily dad has another card in his wallet. Dad called the bank to cancel it and it was nighty night for us.Read more
