We FINALLY found Lady Anne in a roundabout in Colonial Cir.:


We found a new mermaid at CR Services - 2501 Lafayette Blvd.:

And, we finally found the Max & Irma's mermaid from MacArthur Mall.  She has been redone and is now inside the Office Furniture Outlet at 5595 Raby Rd.:

We also checked in with the Norfolk Karate Academy.  We had heard they might have a mermaid, but they said they did not.

Finally, Kaleidoscope at Norfolk Scope was not on her post today.  Perhaps she is being redone???

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

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!
