I knew I wanted to share these pictures even before I was aware of this week’s photo challenge: Beneath Your Feet. What do you know? I think the prompt worked quite nicely for these photos.
I stumbled upon this mermaid in the sand when I was at La Jolla Shores Beach in San Diego, California. That’s right. A mermaid! It was my lucky day.
Two women worked diligently at this mermaid for hours. I just witnessed the last stages and their final touches. As my kids buried themselves in the sand a few feet away, they created this wonderful art.
Those are my painted toes in the sand.
What a treasure!
Here’s a view of the mermaid in full glory.
Unfortunately, high tide eventually got her. So sad. She was a beauty while she lasted.
