Like people, mermaids come in all shapes and sizes, and this week, we have a doozie! Fellow merman, David, sent us this sighting and boy, is she breathtaking. Her name is Arria and she guards the entrance to the Scottish town of Cumberland. The post from My Modern Met, where David first spotted Arria, has loads of info about the statue, so make sure you head over there and have a look.
The 33 foot high mermaid even lights up! What a sight this lovely lady must be at night, in person. I just love the article tidbit about the mermaid being thought to bring luck and prosperity to the village! They are wonderful talismans here on Tybee, for sure. Thanks for sharing David!
Remember, mermaids are everywhere! Keep your eyes peeled…you may have a sighting of your own! If you do, we’d love to hear from you. Please send your sightings to email@example.com and let us share your sighting with everyone!
