Connextions Magazine issue #28: Sirens Paradise examines life near the ocean or water. As summer comes to an end, we want to be able to take advantage of every little bit of sunshine and the beach. It is normal for wanting more beach time, or sun time and for some of us who live in places where it snows in the winter, we are not looking forward to summer ending. But what happens when you live in a place where the sun shines the majority of the time? This is the life we explored in this issue of Connextions Magazine. We visit off the beaten paths of Puerto Rico, where the sun shines and the people dance, and we found sirenas (mermaids). Los Angeles was the perfect setting for our next adventure, where The W Hotel opened its doors with a series of queer events before LA Pride. Palm Springs has it all, water, desert, snow and sun. St. Augustine is a historical city, with so much charm and beauty and so much more.
