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!

Soon, he must face the stunning possibility that the visions of murder are actually real. With his world going dark, Bobby is set on the trail of the serial killer terrorizing his small town.

Blog Tour: A Perilous Journey of Danger and Mayhem (Christopher Healy)

It is 1883—the Age of Invention! A time when great men like Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Nicola Tesla, and George Eastman work to turn the country into a mechanical-electrical-industrial marvel: a land of limitless opportunity. And it all happens at the world famous Inventors Guild headquarters in New York City—a place where a great idea, a lot of hard work, and a little bit of luck can find you rubbing elbows with these gods of industry who will usher humanity into the bright promise of the future.
Unless, of course, you’re a woman.
Molly Pepper, daughter of brilliant but unknown inventor Cassandra Pepper, lives with her mother in New York. By day, they make ends meet running a small pickle shop; but by night, they toil and dream of Cassandra shattering the glass ceiling of the Inventors Guild and taking her place among the most famous inventors in America. In an attempt to find a way to exhibit Cassandra’s work at the 1883 World’s Fair, they break into the Inventors Guild—and…

This week's question: Do you have any furry friends?


These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather.
