Yesterday, while Motor Man and I were on the beach at the Outer Banks, something special caught our eye.
Someone with amazing talent (and plenty of free time) had sculpted a mermaid in the sand..
She was a brown-eyed girl and wore a seashell tiara. We were there late morning, so obviously, she had been created the day before. Some of her features weren’t quite as sharp as they most likely were originally.
Here she is from the back.
Written in the sand in front was the letter “A”, perhaps the initial of the artist?
Just to get an idea of the size of the sculpture, Motor Man had me pose beside her. (Yes, I was a bit intimidated; what human female poses beside a mermaid?)
I texted Marshall a picture of our find with this note: “And the storm (Hermine) will probably take her back to the sea”.
Marshall’s reply: “Probably, but the artist knew that – that’s part of the beauty”.
