Then, it was fascinating to watch as the waves slowly smoothed her out and the ocean took her back. My sister started making a mermaid on every beach she visits. I may have to start doing the same. It is an artform in and of itself!

The Grande Mermaid
While on a family vacation in Florida over the holidays, my sisters and I sculpted a mermaid out of sand on the beach where we were staying. The house we rented was called Grande Mer, so of course she became The Grande Mermaid. It was so much fun, especially designing her jewelry and adding "shell bling" to her tail. And the seaweed made for the perfect hairdo.
