A fond flashback to the 1960s cheese that was Weeki Wachee, Florida, and images of their underwater acrobats. More after the jump.

I remember going there when I was very young, I think I was in the fourth grade.

I was so envious of them. I wanted to be a mermaid like they were.

Thank you for those wonderful pictures. It really has brought back so many fond memories!

Tnx, Gloria. Hope you'll follow up with the ladies of Cypress Gardens posing in their hoop skirts!
