I love to meet people when I walk the dogs. I met two wonderful little girls visiting their grandparents who live down the street. Destiny and Angel were about 9 years old and love to walk and talk. They decided we would be the walking mermaids since they were wearing their water shoes to “cover up their fins ” because they were mermaids! They too loved the fiddler crabs who live along Venetian Drive and we also saw a number of little bunnies as well. That’s the amazing part about our island, we have literally thousands of people here this week ( the busiest week of the year), but back along our waking and bikes paths, we see bunnies, fiddler crabs and walking mermaids!
PS- and speaking of walking mermaids- there is a Mermaid Parade held every year on Coney Island!!! Visit the website http://www.coneyisland.com/mermaid.shtml to see more of this fun!
