DREAMS DO COME TRUE! I had heard of Weeki Wachee Springs for a while. My mom (who grew up in Florida,) remembers going to visit as a child, so it's been around a long time, but I've never been. My sister-in-law decided it would be fun to experience it as a family, so while on family vacation, we went to WEEKI WACHEE SPRINGS!
On my Instagram story, (you can follow me here: www.instagram.com/mermaidvlogs ,) I did a "Mermaid Spotting count" and I'm pretty sure I counted 20 or so! There were mermaid statues, mermaid fountains, mermaid decor was EVERYWHERE! About 4 times a day, they have "Live Mermaid Shows" where it's exactly that--the Weeki Wachee mermaids put on a show!
I was so enthralled by the performance, that I didn't get any photos of the show, but I did get to chat with one of the mermaids, Mermaid Brielle, which you can watch here:
Weeki Wachee Springs is a State Park, so there was lots to do with the fam. We even saw a manatee just swim up as we were enjoying the natural spring water! I made sure to wear my "Mermaid On Duty" shirt (Target) complete with my jean shorts (Nordstrom) and one piece swimsuit (Victoria's Secret.)
