Day 19

Sept. 20, 2014

We found 2 more mermaids!  My mom stumbled on one at Rudee Inlet - not sure her name - and a very kind lady saw our article in the paper and let us come see her mermaid (one I thought was missing).  The no longer missing mermaid is the beautiful Spectrum Gold!  I have also learned that I have 2 mermaids to get in Norfolk City Hall - Carousel and a Neighborhood mermaid - and a mermaid inside a downtown BB&T (not sure which one).  Unfortunately, I will probably have to wait until Christmas break to see those due to my work schedule.  I still also have the possible 3 on the Eastern Shore, the 1 on Naval Station Norfolk, Techno Mermaid in InfiNet, and the 2 that are under repair - O'Sullivan's and D'Art.

*update - found Techno Mermaid - see day 26 post

Unknown mermaid at Rudee Inlet - can't see her front unless you are in the water as she is right on water's edge



  1. loved your mermaid quest! did you find the one at Plume and Atlantic in Downtown Norfolk - I see her a lot when I grab a bite at 3 Way Café (totally recommend it). The 1st mermaid I saw in Norfolk was in the lobby of the Holiday Inn Express near airport. She is stunning with chains for hair. Good luck!

    1. Hi Jan, Is the one at Plume and Atlantic the one that is vertical (pointing to the sky)? If so, yes we do have her. I've never heard of 3 Way Cafe, but will have to go there one day! I checked out the Holiday Inn express and found her - I did not know they had one. Thanks so much for your help! :)

  2. Here are the ones I found while living in VA Beach. I can't wait to look for the newer ones next time we go back to visit!~

    1. Thanks Learning to Breathe! You did find many on your time living in VAB!

  3. Norfolk Karate Academy rescued Sea Shimmer. She's undergoing martial arts training after being knocked off the pedestal on 21st Street and left to die! She will return to adorn the Norfolk Karate Academy dressed in a karate uniform. :)

    1. William - thank you! We are so excited to be able to see her! Is she there now?
