Wonderful to meet a “real” mermaid in Carlsbad today! Mermaid Barbara and her pirate husband were entertaining a little girl’s birthday party. There were a dozen young girls, between 5-11 years of age, entranced by the presence of this beautiful mermaid. What a great way to remind everyone of the preciousness of our oceans. Thank you, Mermaid Barbara, for helping us remember how much we love and need our beloved ocean. Let’s keep our waters clean and healthy, for everyone’s sake.
