T(ea) Tuesday

This is my first post for T(ea) Tuesday. Tonight I'm drinking decaf Tetley Black Tea - British Blend.  I'll probably add a shot of cream liqueur later... It's been one of those days.  Going with the Water Theme... here are some vintage photos of the Mermaids of Weeki Wachee. Weeki Wachee is one of the Florida's last "roadside attractions."  Guests sit 14 feet below the water surface of the Weeki Wachee Spring in a theater where glass separates the guests from the water. It's truly a unique and beautiful show... and today's mermaids still perform. There's even a Mermaid Camp for girls that want to learn to perform when they are old enough.
 I hope you enjoyed my swim down memory lane... Now for that shot of liqueur....


  1. Oh I Love it Diane, great pics and what an amazing show!
    The one with the sea horse is super and of course the "real" mermaids ;)

  4. Thank you for stopping by my blog and taking the time to leave a comment. Interesting post re: the mermaids and I loved the vintage photos, I love old stuff like that. I also like the fact that our husbands names our the same.

  5. I've always wanted to go there! I used to love all the old Ethel Merman movies (I think that was her) with the water follies .... part of wishing I could be a mermaid I guess :)

    p.s. welcome to T on Tuesday! I'm looking forward to future T parties with you! Kimmie

  6. Fab photos I almost felt I was there with them love the one with the mermaid drinking her orange.

    hope that you enjoyed your shot of liquor
