Travel Tuesdays - Scary Mermaid

Crescent City, California
She is a bit scary isn't she?  Even with the flowers in her hair she looks threatening.

Sometimes when I've taken a picture I like I search google images to see what other people have taken. Yep. I'm not the only one who visited this gal - even these guys.  Nice. No wonder she was mad.

A few years ago I flew to Portland, Oregon and joined my daughter on a road trip down the coast to the giant redwoods of California. We stayed at the Requa Inn in Klamath, California in the Redwoods. We did all the touristy things, driving through the giant Redwood, riding the cable care to the top of the mountain, listening to the seals and watching the sunset over the Pacific. What a delightfully different coastline! The air was cool and crisp and I ate my way down the coast in fish and chips.

*Travel Tuesdays will feature photos taken out of Charleston and the Lowcountry.  Join me for Travel Tuesday Field trips!

I also google other images of places I photograph, sometimes to avoid the cliche shots.

Never thought of using google images, but will do this in the future. Thanks for the tip. The mermaid looks pretty good! Have been watching the Olympics every night and certainly the female swimmers could teach her a thing or two!!

Right. And to find the best possible shots when I can.

Try it Kate. It is interesting. So many people have enjoyed the same views.

Dude, she looks serious! Actually, I've always pictured mermaids and fairies being more rugged and a bit vicious, not like the Disney versions. The old Celtic tales didn't make them out to be wearing pearl necklaces and singing with crabs, either.
