....to attend a little party hosted
by my dear friend,
I hope that you will come along with me.
We'll knock gently.
Don't you love that door knocker?
Miss M. has a lovely collection
of 18th century caps
While we are here you may choose
to wear one if you wish.
Before the other guests arrive,
I want you to see how Miss M.
hangs her fairy lights from the ceiling,
and how gorgeous her collection
of hand blown glass is.
Oh, I think I see the flash
and hear the gentle swish of fin.
Do meet her other guests.
Don't be shy. They are truly gentle
and engaging souls.
If one should whisper
a gentle bubble in your ear,
or brush you in passing,
count it as a blessing.
Miss Mermaid's delectable salad is on the table.
Do help yourself.
It is delicious.
I know it has been a long trip,
and it is getting late,
but I hope that you stayed
and enjoyed it.
All photos were taken several years ago at the Oregon Coast Aquarium.
Best to you, ellen.
