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!
Live life SO MERMAID!
