Mermaid Melusine reports:
On the 5th September, I was over in Dublin at the Dartry Health Club, where ten lucky winners aged 3+ got the chance to swim with a real life mermaid, in aid of Temple Street Hospital.
It was all part of the launch of the Dartry's new Kids Swim Lesson programme, and the children who were fortunate enough to win had a whale of a time - and so did I! Swimming is such fantastic exercise, it's wonderful to see kids getting inspired to take up a sport which can have life long benefits. Plus the Dartry's Mermaid Day made it into Dublin's Gazette Newspaper as well.
The Dartry Health Cub even made a beautiful video of the day, complete with clips of me swimming underwater - check it out below:
It didn't take long to discover that Blue Planet is a pretty amazing aquarium! We were swimming in a huge tank with sand tiger sharks, nurse sharks and lemon sharks, huge stingrays, guitar sharks, moray eels and much more.
Like all true mermaids, the Sirens at Merlesque like to let their hair down once in a while...
Never miss us!
