Mermaid Of The Sea

This lonely lady awaits all who’ve sailed from the safe confines of a protected harbor to return from the uncertain seas. As we know, the sea never gives back what she has taken.

For centuries women have waited for their sailors to come home from the sea. In Key West they stood upon the roof in a fenced-in platform called a widow’s walk. Here the mermaid sits upon a rock at the edge of a mangrove swamp hoping to see once again all who departed earlier.

You can find this one woman welcoming home committee at Mile Marker 88.5 oceanside behind the Island Grill in Islamorada.
