Mermaid Sighting: Lovely Mermaids Reflected in St. Augustine

Everyone here at Mermaid Cottages loves sharing mermaid sightings! We love seeing new pictures from all over come in, and how unique and beautiful they are. This week’s sighting comes from Mary A.; though Mary is from Savannah, she was out for the day with friends in St. Augustine, Florida when she spotted this gorgeous mermaid!

St. Augustine is full of beautiful shops and loads of history. Mary tells us this lovely mirrored maiden was hiding in a window nook right inside the garden door of a sweet little vintage shop. She certainly reflects that, doesn’t she? She’s just beautiful Mary, thank you for sharing!

Have you seen a mermaid? Well, we’d love to hear about it! Please send us your mermaid sightings and stories! You can send your sightings to, then keep your eyes peeled, because your sighting could be the next featured right here on our blog!

Tybee Island Wedding Chapel

Tybee Island Wedding Chapel

Today was the second opening ceremony for the Tybee Island Wedding Chapel. About thirty people were in attendance for the ribbon cutting ceremony. This Chapel is the subject of a recent film “The Last Song” staring Miley Cyrus , Liam Hemsworth Greg Kinnear and Tybee of course.

Admittedly I haven’t seen the film yet. I was chatting with one of the attendees whom gave away this detail. The church was burned several times in the making of the movie. The steeple from that church is featured on the property adjacent to the newly renovated Chapel.

This new facility will bring a new market to Tybee. The destination wedding  now has a new spot on it’s map. I’m sure that vacation rental business’ like our Mermaid Cottages will benefit greatly from the year round wedding business. This should shrink the seasonal Business gap considerably. This addition to the recreational activity that Tybee offers will surely prove to be a credit to the city.

The facility has a large banquet hall downstairs from the Chapel itself. The Chapel is very beautiful. Click on the link above. Their picture of the interior is far better than mine. All details for capacity etc. can be found there. There are rooms for bride and groom that are adjacent to the chapel and well appointed. They are designed to suit the needs of the most discerning modern couple.

Happy Planning! Rip Tide
