It has been an all-mermaid week of writing for me in honor of the 33rd Annual Coney Island Mermaid Parade! I’m a huge fan, and I encourage you all to head out to Coney Island and enjoy the official Opening of the Ocean for the Summer 2015 Season!

Also in honor of the summer sun are this week’s amazing markets!
