Weeki Wachee Mermaids

The Weeki Wachee mermaids were performing at the GA Aquarium for the aquarium's 5th anniversary celebration. I could not have imagined a better attraction/show! I've been dieing to visit Weeki Wachee Springs, and loved every minute of the show. It was awesome! One of these days I'll make it down to Florida to see the original show. At home, they dive in a natural spring. In this show, they were diving in the BIG saltwater tank which is home to tons of fish, large stingrays, sharks, a few huge whale sharks, and more. That tube she's holding is how they breath underwater without having to have diving tanks. Naturally, I was first in line and got a great seat right in the front, and was able to take tons of photos.
