Day 30

July 9, 2015

Today we had the pleasure of meeting the wonderful people of Susan G. Komen Tidewater.  They invited us in to meet their two beautiful mermaids, Susie and Asha, both breast cancer awareness mermaids.  They were all so welcoming and kind and even had gift bags prepared for the boys!  To top off the visit, we got to meet the amazing Georgia Mason, the talented artist behind many of the Norfolk mermaids, including the two from today.  Georgia is as lovely as her mermaids and we thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to speak with her.  Thanks everyone!

 "Susie" - Susie the traveling mermaid even has her own twitter page!
"Asha" - a smaller mermaid that also travels to raise awareness for breast cancer

Today we found the 3 Cape Charles Norfolk mermaids.  One was on the street in front of  the Arts Center.  The other 2 were inside Blue Heron Realty Co.  We met some very nice ladies in there who were more than happy to let us see the mermaids and take pictures with them.  Thanks ladies!

Day 28

June 14, 2015

Ok, so this is not really a new mermaid sighting, but I had to share the coolest thing I received for my birthday - a mermaid necklace and earrings that look just like the Norfolk mermaids.  They can be found at Spertner Jewelers inside Mary Barnett's at 4122 Granby St., Norfolk 23504.  LOVE them!

Get ready for more mermaids, herons, and dolphins coming soon - summer vacation starts in 5 days!

Day 25

April 5, 2015

Found 2 official mermaids today and 1 unofficial.  Of the 2 official ones, 1 is a new look on an old mermaid - Princess Azalea has a new look!  I can also say that I am unable to find the mermaid Flight.  The Norfolk Website has her located at 355 W Freemason.  If you Google this address and do a street view, you can see her - but when you actually go there she is no longer there.  I guess this is an old satellite image - the company that was there is now gone and probably took her with them.  Here is what we did find:

 unofficial Nauticus "Place Your Sticker Here" mini mermaid
