“It’s the sound of the sea that makes you believe in mermaids.” 
― Anthony T. Hincks

I have always loved mermaids. When I was a kid my favorite movie was Splash and on more than one occasion I poured an entire jug of salt into my bath to try and turn into one. I lived by the beach and have always been happiest sitting on the dunes and watching the waves; the lull and rhythm brings me an instant sense of peace.

There is so much about the world’s oceans that we don’t know, and there are so many creatures that live beneath the waves that we have yet to discover. I love thinking about the possibilities unknown, and like to think that mermaids do exist. What about you? What mythological creatures do you think are plausible?

What do you think about this quote, and what quote do you want to share this week?

  1. I love the sea. I grew up in a country that doesn’t have it and always saw it as such a novelty. I live in England now and absolutely adore its rocky wild coast, where I escape to a lot. My dream is to live by it one day… 😊

    As a child, I would spend a lot of my time in woods. I would build houses for local fairies. I read a lot of mythology / folk stories as a child and imagined all sorts of creates whom I would serve tea and had heated arguments with. 😂 I absolutely believe, that fairies 🧚‍♀️ are real. Every time I see a little firefly I start hoping… 😊

  2. I love the sound of the sea too but not because of the mermaids. Just because I love swimming and smelling the salty air of the sea.
