SKYWATCH

Below you will find a mermaid at the entrance of Norfolk Botanical Garden in Norfolk, Virginia.  The day we were there the skies were threatening rain but we enjoyed our walk without a drop of liquid sunshine. 








There is a great blog at this link that show other mermaids situated around the city.

  2. I especially love the 2nd photo where your mermaid looks about to fly off her pedestal. I envision her sitting on top of the spray of water.
