Today we searched for more downtown mermaids. We found several but also learned that several are either badly damaged, disassembled, or just plain missing. The 2 mermaids at Waterside, "Low Tide" and "USS Wisconsin," are missing - their signs are there but they are not. The mermaid inside the Norfolk World Trade Center is currently disassembled and not on display. The mermaid at 355 W. Freemason at Shriver & Holland is gone - so is Shriver & Holland. We did see:
Charity at Blocker YMCA 312 Bute St. - in lobby
Lola - found in median/park near 255 College Crossing
Mei Madeline - found along water next to Pagoda
upclose of Mei Madeline - really cool Chinese? characters on her
Full Circle - this poor mermaid is badly in need of a makeover. She is buried in shrubs, missing a hand, and her face is gone. Sad :( Found at the BBT 500 E Main St.)
