A very popular mermaid on Florida’s Adventure Coast, this mermaid has many friends that enjoy her company, including fish, sanderlings, lizards, frogs, and others. A sea turtle appears to be coming out of a cavern, while crabs and various seashells are always nearby. She is frequently seen holding a water lily.
