Kisses and gentle high fives....!



Patiently waiting to see the Fringe World Mermaids just one of the 450 strange and wonderful events going on in and around Perth during the Fringe World Festival. The mermaid tank in the Perth Cultural Centre is a big hit with children and the young at heart, with two shows every evening at 6 and 7pm until the festival closes on the 23rd February. There's a gasp from the front row as the door slides open to reveal a glimpse of the siren of the sea!


 ... there she is !


Every mermaid needs a merman....!


A flick of water from her tail scatters the youngsters shrieking and laughing......


 .... and finally, this is what they've been waiting for.. kisses and gentles 'high fives' with a beautiful mermaid. I have heard that the mermaids appear every now and then at the marina close to me, will have to try and catch them actually in the ocean, that would be so cool! Aimee and I were at the Twisted Vaudeville Circus last night, sooo many pics, will show you tomorrow.. it was fabulous :) Happy Friday, take care and stay safe.....

  6. Now that looks like a nice way to cool down in the heat you are having! The question is, how does she stay underwater and smiling for any length of time? :-)

    There'll be a surprise on VDP tomorrow!

  13. It looks like a gentle and exotic Fringe. We went to the original once in Edinburgh. It was rather more loopy.
