Mermaid Tells Her Tale

If mermaids really lived, they might be much like this mermaid, Hannah Fraser. Without air tanks, this mermaid swims down 50 feet into the ocean, and even the best of swimmers find it difficult to swim with her. Whales, sharks, and other fish swim beside her as if she is one of them. Her dream to become a mermaid began early in life, and it seems she is swimmingly living her dream! This is one amazing mermaid!

Mermaids from the Flight of the Conchords

Mermaids from Flight of the Conchords is a fun musical video, and the vocals are great. It will only take about a minute and a half to surf into this adventure featuring mermaids.

Mermaid Tall Tale Song

Here at Tall Sails Adventure we promise you some tall tales, and mermaid stories are tall tails tales so we can't resist talking about them. Mermaids are most likely a tall tale from the imagination of man, although there are some videos online that claim otherwise.

This mermaid song is fun and in my opinion the two men who sing the song have good voices. I especially like the sound of the deep bass. That's bass as in the octave, not bass as in fish - lol. Sit back and enjoy this video about mermaids, and yes they do sing more words than just mermaids, mermaids, mermaids!

Weeki Wachee Mermaids

Mermaids are always a fantasy for water-loving guys who dream of finding a mate who loves the water. The Weeki Wachee Mermaids have been swimming around for over sixty years to keep the mermaid tails tales alive.

Since October 13, 1947 the Weeki Wachee Mermaids have been performing underwater ballet and entertaining many people wishing that mermaids were reality. In the 1950s, Weeki Wachee became one of the nation’s most popular tourist stops, which is no surprise since mermaids don't wear much clothing.

If you're wanting to take a break from reality, mermaids will certainly get your imagination running wild!

Peter Pan and the Pirate Captain Hook

If you like pirate stories, most likely you recall the story of Peter Pan and his arch rival and pirate, Captain Hook in the Mermaids Lagoon. Peter Pan cut off Captain Hooks right hook hand and fed it to a crocodile. The crocodile then chased Captain Hook around looking for more, but Captain Hook always knew where the crocodile was because he swallowed a clock and Captain Hook was able to hear the clock ticking inside the crocodile.

If you like Disney trivia, the inspiration for this blog post came from the writer of The Kid Within, and that's where I was reminded that Peter Pan flew past the second star to the right, and straight on till morning! That route took Peter Pan where the flying ships reached Neverland -- the fictional island dream world in the Peter Pan story!

The Mermaids' Lagoon

He stood motionless, one hand to his ear. "Pirates!" he cried. The others came closer to him. A strange smile was playing about his face, and Wendy saw it and shuddered. While that smile was on his face no one dared address him; all they could do was to stand ready to obey. The order came sharp and incisive. "Dive!" There was a gleam of legs, and instantly the lagoon seemed deserted. Marooners' Rock stood alone in the forbidding waters as if it were itself marooned.

The boat drew nearer. It was the pirate dinghy, with three figures in her, Smee and Starkey, and the third a captive, no other than Tiger Lily. Her hands and ankles were tied, and she knew what was to be her fate. She was to be left on the rock to perish, an end to one of her race more terrible than death by fire or torture, for is it not written in the book of the tribe that there is no path through water to the happy hunting-ground? Yet her face was impassive; she was the daughter of a chief, she must die as a chief's daughter, it is enough.

They had caught her boarding the pirate ship with a knife in her mouth. No watch was kept on the ship, it being Hook's boast that the wind of his name guarded the ship for a mile around. Now her fate would help to guard it also. One more wail would go the round in that wind by night. In the gloom that they brought with them the two pirates did not see the rock till they crashed into it...
