It turns out mermaids do exist! During our Hawaii trip, this one washed ashore in the lagoon below our lanai. She rested there for awhile and then disappeared, presumably back into the sea. While on the Big Island we also went on a jungle hike to a secret waterfall with our friend Fabio (click here to see the short video), swam with sea turtles (click here), looked into a fiery volcano, and met Mr. and Mrs. Hadley for breakfast. What a great trip!
