Here it is, my new tail! Neverland fabric tail by the amazing @finfolkproductions. The fluke is huge, the fit is snug and I'm not sure if it's too small or not. I'm still recovering from the leech in the eye incident and the eye infection caused by it, so I have to wait to get back to the water and take this beauty for a swim. Let's see if it'll take me to Neverland.

The weather was poor for a pique-nique and a promenade in the park but anyway it was nice to see everyone. Despite the weather it was a nice day with a guided tour in Svartå Manor and lunch and cake at Café Antique in Fiskars.

Okay, this little fellow here is Juha. Juha is a leech. We met in a nearby lake on a morning swim and it seems Juha thought I was delicious. I noticed Juha when he slipped out of my eye. He had attached himself on the inside of my lower eyelid. Straight to the doctor's I went and luckily Juha had not done any larger damage, he had just left his mark. The eye was cleaned of blood and brown gunk and I got antibiotics to prevent infection. No swimming for me until the eye's healed. Juha, I must say, that wasn't nice.

I'm freeee! My summer holidays (first set of two weeks) just started. Holiday plans? Yes! Mostly time travelling and swimming. There will be two 18th century day events in Svartå and Vaasa and a local SCA gathering in the arboretum. Pique-niqueing through centuries! Also, my new tail should be delivered on Monday or Tuesday.

Can't wait to get back in the water tomorrow! Last time I didn't have the GoPro with me, so of course it was very beautiful and we saw a school of perches. But last time I had the camera with me we did spot a tennis ball!

Had such a wonderful afternoon on our "secret" beach with @norppahh_96. Great time was had playing and diving in the waves, admiring the underwater scenery, chatting on a rock and enjoying the warm water. Also, a doggie ran up to me in the water and bit my fluke.

I took my goddaughter and her little sisters mermaid spotting today. The little ones were in awe and very excited: they saw real mermaids! And the mermaids gave them real mermaid necklaces!
Afterwards my mother called me and told the girls talked about mermaids all the way home. They are going to visit their cousins tomorrow and they couldn't wait to tell their cousin they had seen mermaids. "You know, she (their cousin) must believe in mermaids, she must believe us! She believes in God and nobody has seen God. But we saw the mermaids and they were real and gave us these necklaces!" my 6-year-old goddaughter had told my mother. Yep, the logic is strong with this one.
It also almost broke my heart to see her stand on the beach watching the waves and sighing: "I wish I was a mermaid. Then I could stay in the water all the time. Why can't I be a mermaid?" Oh, little guppy, maybe one day you'll grow fins... It hasn't rained for ages and of course today it poured down with thunder. We were so lucky we don't turn into mermaids when we touch water.

Had so much fun at the beach today with my goddaughter and her little sisters. Lilla-Hilla learned to float, I'm so proud of her! I'm taking her to swimming lessons in September. Also, I conquered two mermaid rocks, though I guess I looked more like a seal.

Hello, lucky fins! Couldn't resist sharing this since I've now been sleeping at my parents' place because of the heatwave and there is this baby photo collage of me hanging on the wall of my room and this particular photo always makes me happy. I loved that swing!

Yep, when I was born most of the doctors didn't think I'd ever be able to even walk. Now I'm going to sleep after a Renaissance dance gig. And I've done so much more than just Renaissance dancing! Ballet, Baroque and Irish dancing... Somehow I find that thought very comforting today.
