You know that point in an adventure when you’ve got your map, your bags are packed, you’re raring to go, and you suddenly realise you don’t have the most important thing – a way to record the fantastic creatures you’re searching for.
Fortunately for me, in any good story, the hero will meet a seasoned traveller of the worlds who helps with training, equipment, or advice. In my case, it was my boss who suggested, and lent me a GoPro. Takes video + goes underwater!
And I found them – the mermaids. But not strictly speaking your traditional mermaid with the body of a woman and fish tail from waist down. They still look human. Ethereal, fey water dancers with long, translucent fins. And you’ll never guess where I found them.
Huge thanks to Waterworld for letting me film and get totally waterlogged in their dive pool. My adventure continues! And stick with me, I may have water dancers, but now I need a story for them…
Keep on shining bright,
