the mermaid has been chilling out to this song – quite literally, as the thames is progressively getting colder. thankfully, she won’t have to do too much hunting this winter, as she is being fed on some of the houseboats. there, landfolk have been playing their songs to her, which she appreciates even more. she has also been trying to sing some merfolk songs, which have confused the landfolk a lot. lots more cultural exchange needed!
the mermaid is currently visiting the north of the island a lot where she has joined a group of enthusiastic landfolk researchers. the waters of the clyde river and of the coastal waters are pretty warm at the moment, so the mermaid appreciates excursion to the inland lochs for a cool-off.
meanwhile, some of the mermaid’s landfolk colleagues have been working on a project called ‘shoreshapers’. this project seeks to teach landfolk young about how even the smallest merfolk contribute to the shaping of their land. an activity book with colourful cards and games can be downloaded here.
