When I heard about this, I immediately thought of the famous Norfolk Mermaid (http://www.mermaidsonparade.com/index.php ; http://www.mermaidsonparade.com/Mermaids/index.html ) all across town. That's when I wanted to make my own mermaid, of course, with a little help (hey, the rules didn't say you have to do it yourself...o_o seriously try making a mermaid by yourself. it's HARD) we collected all the seaweed on shore, and found the crab shells on the beach. A police officer came by and said the mermaid was the best he'd ever seen.
with that said, here is another my sister and I made on norfolk's beach....a whale!
