The setting couldn't have been better - the tide was in - people were out enjoying the last long weekend before another school year begins - no one expected to see the unexpected.
A mermaid was sunning herself on a large boulder nestled amongst the smaller ones covered in barnacles, the sun was dancing on the water keeping time with the laughter all around, a mother seagull feeding her young - summer was having its last hurrah.
Children and adults alike stopped to take in the magical sight for it isn't every day one sees a mermaid in Vancouver.
Such was the day where friends and memories came together and played between the layers of blue, and I captured some of it to share with you. Enjoy!
What did you do this weekend to take your mind off the start of another month?
