Splash Into Summer 4: Mermaids Around the World



To help celebrate Splash Into Summer’s 4th year, I’m guest posting over at A Backwards Story. I decided I should post here as well since there are so many amazing mermaid statues around the world to share! 

It’s a pretty well-known fact among my friends that I love all things mer. As they traveled this summer, they sent me some pretty awesome pictures. I absolutely love that so many “local” places feature mermaids too. You don’t have to be near the sea to appreciate the lure of a siren!

1.       Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

While this one is something I found on the net, I still think it’s worth showing. It’s one of my favorite statues. One of the things I love the most about this statue is that it not only has a mermaid, but it also features a MERMAN. Thanks to kuriositas.com for providing the picture. 




2.       Okinawa, Japan

My grandfather was stationed in Okinawa many years ago during his service in the Coast Guard. While I’m pretty sure this statue wasn’t there at that time, I’m glad it is now! You can find this lovely lady on Moon Beach. Thanks to mermaidsofearth.com for the image. 




    


 3.       London, England

Tea, crumpets, royal baby, mermaids? Sounds like your typical trip to England, right? One of the fountains in Trafalgar Square features a pretty
fierce mermaid.




  4.       NYC

Want another reason to visit NYC? How about a mermaid spotting inland? Thanks to my aunt (who lives on her own island in NY) for finding this for me. You can find this statue in Fountain Square at Larchmont Manor.  






5.       Hawaii Mermaid at the Grand Wailea 

I think Hawaii is pretty synonymous with mermaids, or at least it should be. Who couldn’t imagine these beautiful creatures lounging on the white sandy beaches? I’ve got an old friend that travels to Hawaii at least once a year. Check out this lovely she found on her travels!

Both of your posts were a delight to read! I love mermaids too, and I didn't realize there were so many beautiful mermaid statues around the world! I only really knew about the one in Copenhagen! Great post!
