Mermaid Sighting: Mermaids Everywhere!

Everyone here at Mermaid Cottages has known for a long time…Mermaids are everywhere! You just have to know where to look. Well, this article on USA Today was brought to our attention recently and of course, it got us all excited!

Mermaids have always been big with us, but it seems the rest of the world is catching on…and fast! We told you in an early April post (found here) about the newest Pirates of the Caribbean installment and it’s mermaids, but now there are many more places where mermaids are surfacing. The article from USA Today even lead us to discover MerCon…the official Mermaid convention and, according to them, the largest gathering of mermaids in history! the 2011 convention is Las Vegas will have mermaid everything…performers, jewelry, you name it! How exciting would that be to attend? You can even check them out on Facebook on the World Mermaid Awards page!

The USA Today article even mentions that Twilight Saga author, Stephenie Meyer, will be tackling the subject of mermaids. She isn’t the only one by far! Some other books out there are Mermaid by Carolyn Turgen, Dreamland Social Club by Tara Altebrando, and Lost Voices, a book about a teenage girl’s transformation into a mermaid, by Sara Porter. Through all the new mermaid reading in the article, we even discovered a new magazine, Mermaids & Mythology, coming out in 2011 dedicated to mermaids!

There’s just so much to be excited about as far as mermaids go, and we can’t wait to see what’s next! If you have a mermaid sighting, or even interesting mermaid news, please share!
