Natalie sent us this photo from her recent summer trip to California. She had this to say about the trip:

Spotted: A mermaid on Venice Beach, California!


I took this picture in August 2012 during my holiday to Southern California to visit my sister.  The beaches there are beautiful and the weather is amazing.  Venice Beach is more than just the ocean and sand though; it is filled with many different characters and some good shopping.  I thought the Ocean Song journal from the Laurel Burch Collection was the perfect book for this setting and for my holiday.  I used it in the lead up to my trip and during it to make sure that I saw everything I wanted to during my two-week stay.  It came with me to many different places: Huntington Beach, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and on the 10 -hour drive to San Francisco (it’s where we kept the directions so we didn’t get lost).  It was the perfect travel companion.
