Sirena Sunday

Tales of mermaids have been around for centuries, and form a large part of seafaring lore, especially round the coastal areas of Britain such as Cornwall, and the Northern Isles of Scotland. Their sighting was thought to be a bad omen, foretelling storms and rough seas. There are numerous folk tales describing their interaction with humans.

I'm so glad we mermaids have overcome our reputations. Most of us are fairly good girls. I am. You are. In fact, I never met a mermaid I didn't like.

Well... wait a minute, there was that one red head in the hotel hot tub...
