Loved the mermaid photos - funny you should mention, it was my Dad James Lewicki who did the mermaid painting for Life magazine, part of the American Folklore series.
Best wishes,

Dearest Sallie,
I wish I could see the show; your pictures are SO beautiful♡♡♡ The mermaids look really lovely and I remember I wished to see the ocean becoming mermaid when little p;)

Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*


Fun shots. I used to want to be a mermaid.


Now that looks like a show I would LOVE to see. The mermaids look so "real", lol.

I grew up going to see the mermaids there. We used to go when we came to visit my grandparents. When I was in grade school I used to tell my Mom I wanted to be a mermaid when I grew up. I used to practice holding my breath. Some things turn out for the better though.

wow, how fun is that. I woudl have loved to see it. You got soem great shots too. Thanks for sharing.


Seems like a magical place for any age group - it's very purpose might be for us to enjoy the gift of wonder calling at us to believe in magic...maybe not the kind of magic we once believed in but the magic that comes from kindness, compassion, and care. It's a great reminder for us to spread just a little magic ourselves. Great post, blessings to you & have a great week!

Your pics are great Sallie- glad you two stopped and enjoyed the show.
Be safe out there!


Hi Sallie! We drove over there a couple of years ago, but they were just closing, so we took a bunch of photos and left. I posted some of those photos on our Florida Fotos blog. It looked rather run-down and scruffy then. Better go back and see if anything has changed.

Thank you for your very kind comments and I hope that you are having a great time "on the road again."

I'm for anything that preserves history. It looks a pretty amazing show too.


How original ! but I wouldn't want to do this job, being in the water the whole day, lol ! Especially I don't like to be under water !


Great and cool photos!


A wonderful beginning to your trip! Enjoy yourselves.


I was not sure mermaids exist but now, I know it's true ! Thanks to you, Sallie !

Ah, so mermaids do exist?! :-)


It's funky, yet cool.


This is really wonderful experience.


I have always loved the idea of mermaids. I would have enjoyed this as a little girl and probably still would. Your second image with the 'mermaids' and the bubbles facilitate the fantasy!
Your trip is off to a wonderful start.


You were a kid again! I never knew Mermaids have different colored fins!


How fun!! And what great captures for the day! Thanks for sharing!!


What a great idea. Oklahoma has bought a tourist trap or two also. I think that is a good idea. I love your pics. They have a nice patina to them.


too cute! somewhere in texas, they had a live mermaid show. a guy i worked with married a redheaded mermaid. :)


Sallie, it looks like a fun tourist trap! Loved the photos, thanks for sharing. Have a happy week!


Definitely a tourist trap (I would say!) but it looks to be great fun!

it's fun, especially if you have a little umbrella drink while you're watching that :)


It looks like fun. I expect they can hold their breath for quite a lot longer than i ever could.
