Had a small photo shoot today at the river beach.

I really love this picture. :p I wish the misting station wasn’t so far out of the way. It’d be fun to just flop there in our tails.

Also someone asked me “couldn’t they have stuck you somewhere with shade??”, so I suppose people assumed I was part of the faire…?

Because of the heat and direct sun at the faire, I wasn’t able to hang out in my tail for very long. But I did get a few interested kids. My favorite was this little boy who couldn’t be more than 6 years old and had a speech impediment. I had a hard time understanding him but luckily his mother was acting as translator. He wanted to know all about where I came from (the lake behind me) and what I was doing out of the water. There was a dragon in the water and he wanted to make sure that he wouldn’t hurt me. Then he asked what the dragon’s name was and what my name was. He introduced himself as Thomas before then introducing all members of his family in the group he was with. The whole time he was just so excited to be talking to me. His mom had to gently drag him away so they could continue seeing other areas of the faire, but he eventually came around again. He was just so cute and genuine, and I’m glad to have met him.

Got my silicone neoprene tail!

I need some help with my monofin, though.

I bought the tail secondhand. It’s a Mertailor, about 5 years old. His website says he uses the Finis Wave monofin in the silicone neoprenes.

The heel strap on the monofin is not attached on the left side. The right side is attached, and there are two hooks — one attaches between the foot pockets, and the other one is supposed to attach somewhere on the left side.

That’s what I need help with — I can’t figure out where it goes! I can’t see down there and I can’t feel where it would go. I don’t know what to do :(

Can anyone help me out?

There should be a little knob sticking out the side of the left foot pocket where the heel strap would clip on to. I’m not sure how much wiggle room you have by the ankles, but try to feel both sides of the monofin with both hands simultaneously so you can feel the difference and find where you need to clip the strap. Mermaid Lindsey’s tail is the same style as yours; she may be able to help you better. Her blog is mermaids-and-anchors

I’ve tried to find that spot for a couple days now ): I don’t have a lot of wiggle room around my ankles.
I can’t even adjust the strap on the right side to fit around my ankle :c

Thanks though ♡

The latch for loosening the straps is hard to work even under the best circumstances. D; it’s just the way it’s designed. Have you tried contacting the person you bought the tail from? Maybe they know the special trick to make it work. Hopefully the knob isn’t broken off. =/ Good luck! Sorry I couldn’t be of more help!
