On this particular swim I asked Mermaid Bjossa to help me with my figure 8 flips (something I've been struggling a bit with recently). Without a doubt, Mermaid Bjossa does the most appealing figure 8 flips and so I was really excited when she agreed to help a fish out!
Mermaid figure 8 flips with a surface are hard to do! Mermaid Bjossa gives me some serious pointers and helps me get back on track! 💖
I feel so blessed to have such a supportive fish to swim with! She never makes me feel badly when my physical limitations get in the way and any time I have a breakthrough with something (even something as small as touching the bottom of the pool) she cheers me on and it makes all the difference! 💖
I'm very excited for our next swim session to see what other new moves we can come up with and to see if I can finally nail an EPIC figure 8 flip!
Overall I highly recommend this fin for practice swims as it makes the whole experience far simpler as I'm not having to haul a giant tail bag with a huge monofin in it.
Do you have a preferred monofin for practice swims? Leave me a comment and let me know!

This mermaid swims outside at night in the dark... Swimming in the dark, outside is one of my favourite things! Nothing beats a spooky evening spent underwater! 👻 Have you ever been on a mermaid swim at night, outside?
A few things that are definitely not super obvious in the video:
1. I can't see ANYTHING. The only thing I can make out is the colour of the lights. I can't see the bottom of the pool, or the walls, or even my camera. Why? Your ability to see underwater is HUGELY dependent on the amount of light available. On a bright sunny day I can see well enough to make out faces and even expressions underwater. Cool right?
2. Parts of the pool were FREEZING COLD. Any time I do a backflip, my face dips into the COLDEST WATER EVER! Well maybe not EVER, but it was chilly as heck!
3. I'm actually not alone for this swim! I do my best to always swim with a buddy because SAFETY FIRST. I was sad that none of the footage I took with me AND Mermaid Zelda turned out nicely. I ended up make a last-minute decision to just shorten the video and tell a different story instead.
I hope I get to do another night swim in this pool again soon! It was absolutely breathtaking and swimming at night has to be one of my fave spooky activities!
