I love mermaids. With nearly three-quarters of the Earth covered by water, it's little wonder that, centuries ago, the oceans were believed to contain many mysterious creatures, including sea serpents and mermaids. Merfolk (mermaids and mermen) are, of course, only the marine version of half-human, half-animal legends that have captured human imagination for ages.
There are many legends about mermaids. One story claimed that a mermaid had entered Holland through a dyke, and was injured in the process. She was taken to a nearby lake and nursed back to health/ She eventually became a citizen of the town, learned to speak Dutch, performed household chores and converted to Catholicism. Wowsers. imaging living next door to a mermaid!!

  4. I think Sabrina Goddess Of The River Severn was probably a mermaid. :) So far I haven't altered the statue of her in the park tho :) Maybe I should suggest it to the gorilla knitters? :D This is beautiful. I am not sure how many birthday cards I am allowed tho. :)
