Sometimes the place where you live is the perfect travel destination. That was the case this weekend in Brooklyn because it was the annual Mermaid Parade in famous Coney Island.

This is the time when people can express their creativity, and maybe also, exhibitionism and have a great time sharing their ingenuity with the world. It isn’t a rule driven parade and just about anybody who wants to can participate in it. Plus the spectators also get dressed for the occasion. All in all, it’s a great big party.

I went with my husband, daughter and a couple of her friends. On the way there, I bought a giant bubble wand & had fun with that on the boardwalk. Here’s a pic of our group.

It was great fun and I made a video of some of it to share with you. Please understand that I am still learning the video basics as I participate in a video challenge this month. Excuse the problems with it. Thanx!

Hope you enjoyed it!
