Mermaid Meant For South Carolina

Had to check out the mermaid on our road trip. We love her backstory, and agree SC lost out. Quick, easy find in the parking lot of a shopping center.

Mermaid Meant For South Carolina

Big loss for Beaufort! It's a really beautiful sculpture and worth pulling over. It's very detailed and has several octopus, turtles and other sea creatures.
