For The Love Of Water: A Real-Life Mermaid


"The process of becoming a mermaid was quite indirect," says Linden Wolbert, a Los Angeles- based real-life mermaid.

An avid swimmer since the age of 3, Wolbert fondly remembers the first time her parents enrolled her in a swimming class. " My first memories of water circulate around dreaming I was on the crew of Jacques Yves Cousteau's Calypso and pretending I was a mermaid by kicking with my feet together."
