Bellafina is back for the Summer! She loves to swim at Falls Lake. Today she got to finally see all her friends at Camp Blazing Trails as well as meet some new ones. She even brought her friend, Mrs. Withers. She is a school teacher visiting all the way from South Africa. She had heard how mermaids come on shore here, and wanted to see it for herself. No mermaids have been spotted on shore yet in South Africa.
Bellafina was at Falls Lake today visiting Camp Blazing Trails again. She was so excited to be back. She brought some seashells which she painted and the kids turned them into necklaces. The got to take a peak into her journal where she talks about all her adventures and they got to write her messages. She is so glad to be back visiting this year!!
I saw Bellafina today and she showed me all the wonderful messages the campers wrote to her. They are so sweet! :)
Bellafina is my identical twin mermaid sister! She grew up swimming around the coasts of Italy, France, and Spain. She decided she wanted to study humans, so she swam through the Atlantic Ocean, all the way to Carolina Beach, NC. She spent a year at Carolina Beach, studying the humans there and getting to know the fish and dolphins that swim in the waters there. One day, she met a fish named Alejandro, who had swum all the way from Falls Lake down the Neuse River. He told her about a camp counselor named Mama Llama and all the campers at Camp Blazing Trails. She decided to swim up the Neuse River to visit Camp Blazing Trails and find Mama Llama. She wanted to learn about this human who knew so much about mermaids. She found Mama Llama, and was invited to stay at Camp Blazing Trails for the Summer. Mama Llama has been teaching Bellafina English and how to write.
