Live Mermaid Model!

Here I am back again after a long hiatus. I've been away a lot, some for work and some for pleasure. On my pleasure trips I have been hanging out at a beautiful estate in CT called Harkness State Park that is on the ocean. One day while I was there sitting on the beach a woman walked by with her young child and sat on a large rock. She looked just like a mermaid and I wished I had my camera. My boyfriend said "Just go up and ask her how long she'll be there" and maybe you can run back to the car and get your paints. Fortunately I always keep my paints in the car. So I did just that and she agreed to be still for a bit. I didn't capture her boy but I did a decent job of capturing her in a very short time. Very exciting!
