My dear granddaughter Lucy is such a mermaid!
She is always happiest when she is in some water, any water, anytime, anywhere.
It’s not like she’s a fast or excellent swimmer, tho a good one, and she doesn’t want to be on a swim team or anything like that… Hates any kind of competition… She just loves to be in the water.
Here is proof:
She is up in New Hampshire at a lake with her family this week.
Her mom took this picture yesterday… Does it not show the joy of childhood?
This is a girl who is so self-conscious about (hates) her 12 year old changing body.
And yet look…put her in her happy place and all of that angst disappears!
She cannot wait until we go to Anguilla next week (we arrive Monday, they arrive Thursday) and fully intends to spend all seven days submerged.
