Mermaid Patience enjoys her time soaking in the Florida sunshine. She loves wearing her one-of-a-kind ocean jewelry and will never be caught underwater or on shore without it! As she sits on her rock taking a break from life under the sea, she thinks about all of the wonderful things she loves about Florida – the breathtaking scenery, the sunsets, the fish, the animals, the attractions and so much more. She dreams of the day she will be able to walk on land and take a stroll through a one-of-a-kind Florida town that she’s heard oh so much about – a town called Brooksville! Until then, she will relax on a rock and enjoy the warm breeze, as she patiently waits for her day on land to arrive.
