Back in 1991 at The Mermaid Day Parade, the Reverend Pedro had a message layered with many meanings.

6-2-13: Travel Theme- Costume

Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week is Costumes. I think last year’s Mermaid Day Parade fits the bill.








Because of Sandy, the parade lost a lot of its revenue generating potential over the winter and has started a Kickstarter campaign to keep it afloat this year. Feel free to give them a buck or two here.

10-21-12 Flashback

“These fragments I have shored against my ruins”

T. S. Eliot

I have been doing a lot of work inside Lightroom over the last few days and have not been able to get outside very much.

So I thought I would travel back to summer…


6-23-12 The Much More Complete Mermaid Day Parade (PG-13 parental guidance suggested)

Long Live the Queen

I always enjoyed the Coney Island Mermaid Parade but hadn’t been in several years. Since we were missing the Gay Pride Parade on Sunday to take Abigail to camp I figured I would go out to Coney on Saturday and check it out. It is much bigger and lots more spectators but still the same parade.
