Of Land and Sea

Author Lisa Dawn offers a fresh take on the classic Little Mermaid story. Releaed in March of 2010, 'Of Land and Sea: The Untold Story of The Little Mermaid' may not have seen the audience it deserves. Let's get right to the synopsis:
Everyone thinks they know the story of the ambitious young mermaid who traded her voice for the chance to be granted a human soul. However, very little is known about the temple princess who unintentionally prevented the mermaid from attaining her goal--until now, that is. Meet Helena of Kamdren, a sheltered young woman who is exiled to the holy temple due to her sacrilegious belief in mermaids. 
When Helena finds herself engaged to Prince Aiden of Ganchepone, she has no idea of the impact she has on the life of a beautiful little mermaid she had encountered many years before. Of Land and Sea is a tribute to Hans Christian Andersen as a continuation of the beautiful tale he wrote so many years ago.
Of Land and Sea can be found on Amazon in either Kindle format ($4.50 US) or paperback ($10 US).

Disneyland Mermaids

Back in 1959, Disneyland held a grand re-opening of Tomorrowland with the Submarine Voyage ride. A nearby lagoon featured mermaids that would wave and blow kisses to the crowd.

"Passengers aboard the monorail zooming around the park could also see the mermaids from above, sunning themselves on a rock in the lagoon."

You can find the full story, and a number of fine pictures, in this article by Sara Boboltz for The Huffington Post.

Down East Mermaid

On August 1st, Eastport Maine will see the completion of a project five years in the making. A bronze mermaid, the work of artist Richard Klyver, will be installed along the sea walk.

"The mermaid does not have a name yet, but local school children are expected to participate in a naming contest this fall, according to Klyver."

For all the details, swim on over to this article at The Bangor Daily News.
