Post 2 of 3 for the Mermaid Tea Party!
Well, we are having such fun at the Mermaid Tea Party!
Just before we hit the open sea, we saw some other water denizens…
Ah, manatees! The gentle giants. We offered them tea, but they weren’t interested, so we kept heading out to sea… (Images by me a few years back; layout made using the Rough to the Touch kit by Lorie at scrapbookgraphics.com)
We said goodbye and floated out, hearing strains of merfolk merrily partying…and then voila! We found the mermaids!

We anchored the boat and eagerly jumped overboard to join in the fun! You see, when you go looking for mermaid parties, and you happily join in the fun, as soon as you go under water you grow fins and gills! So we became merfolk for the duration of our stay.
We swam down to the party, and everyone was singing and dancing:
After all that, we settled down to tea and cupcakes…well, some of the mermaids offered something squiggly and slimy, but I wasn’t feeling adventurous, so I declined. But I finished my tea and so asked one of the Korknisse if I could have some of his…and lo and behold, that little sucker had spiked his tea!
What a little scamp!
I’ll off to enjoy the party…sit here and sing and then swim and then enjoy more spiked “tea” …soak in all the magic.
“Just keep swimming, just keep swiiiimming…”
