..... OR Mermaids & Sailors .... They go well together, no matter in which order I place them. These are two of my favorite subjects that I pursue in Art, Literature, Film, Music, Antiques & Collectibles and the Decorative Arts. I will be sharing things here from my collections and other items from the internet that I find appealing to me.
..... I also enjoy all things related to the "Seven Seas", which, of course is the domain of both, Mermaids and Sailors. This may include oceans, islands, ports & harbors, beaches, sea creatures, and classic sailing ships, to name a few.
..... So, relax and enjoy the sometimes wild, but always wet, world of Mermaids & Sailors !!

Did you know that seahorses are pretty romantic fish? They are monogamous, and choose only one mate for life. This isn’t because of any deep love, as we think of it, however. Seahorses live in pretty low densities, and searching for a mate by swimming openly is dangerous because it makes them susceptible to predators. By choosing a single mate that sticks by their side, they increase their chances of reproducing multiple times and spreading their genes!
Once they find one another, a seahorse pair will greet each other every morning with a unique dance that often involves changing color. This helps them recognize one another, confirm that both have still stuck around, and sync their reproductive cycles.
