Lady in the Lake.

Lady in the Bay

Built by Foamhenge creator Mark Cline, the giant Lady appears to be using the bayou as a bathtub. Only her knees and head are visible above the water.

Lady in the Bay

There is a big yellow boat that will take you out to see dolphins around the bay. Not too far from the bay we passed the Marina and there was the Lady. We had a very good view from the boat. It was an interesting moment on our dolphin cruise, to say the least.

Lady in the Bay

She was damaged by hurricanes and is no longer there.

[Cori VanDevender, 06/24/2022]

The damaged Lady has been repaired at the studio of Mark Cline, its creator, in Virginia, and is awaiting transport back to Alabama.

Lady in the Bay

They are currently repairing her for a future date, so all hope is not lost. We met some locals who work in the same Bay that the Lady was in, and they explained that Hurricane Sally really messed her up. She was found in pieces and is being repaired somewhere.

[Krystal, 01/01/2022]

The Lady is slated to return some time in 2022. Fiberglass artist Mark Cline is repairing his giant floating creation -- and making a backup Lady as well, in case another hurricane pays a visit.

This oddity was destroyed due to Hurricane Sally on September 14.

[Brooke Stulce, 10/02/2020]

Mark Cline, who created the Lady, told us that "we are now in talks about repairing her," but added that "there's a possibility she'll never be restored."
