“Maybe I would become a mermaid. I would live in the swirling blue-green currents, doing exotic underwater dances for the fish, kissed by sea anemones , caressed by seaweed shawls. I would have a dolphin friend. He would have merry eyes and thick flesh of a god. My fingernails would be tiny shells and my skin would be like jade with light shining through it I would never have to come back up”.

Ever since I can remember, I’ve had the biggest fascinations with mermaids. Ariel (The Little Mermaid) is not only my favourite Disney Princess but also a character I felt like I could relate to in a lot of ways, mostly always wanting more for herself, to explore and to learn new things in new places, to feed her curiosity.
I need to feed my curiosity. This calls for the beach.
