Still, it's a a more charming delusion than if she claims to be Merman and can belt to the rafters "There's No Business Like Show Business." That would be truly anti-social.
Option A: Slight webbing between toes?
Option B: massively-extended tarsal bones in both feet (including the toes) and a wide vascularised loose covering of skin with cartilage edging, with hugely-developed musculature in the whole legs and ankles...
Let me guess which Option it wil be (hint...not Option B. Or I will eat my flippers)
ps where's the plural mermaids @XBergMann ?
I believe an appropriate collective term might be a shoal. Or bevy. Or maybe a wave? Though perhaps an unlikelihood of mermaids fits best.it was just one mermaid and not a
Sounds a bit fishy to me, but I'll bite!The word ones being a case in point as a plural singularity.
"... Anne was a little tired of the noise and merriment. She slipped through the hall to a back door that opened almost on the bay, and flitted down a flight of rocky steps to the shore, past a little grove of pointed firs. How divine the cool salt air was after the sultry evening! How dream-like that ship which had sailed at the rising of the moon and was now approaching the harbor bar!

Exploring this further, there seems to be little information out there.
I also came across another picture of Readymoney Cove, where a mermaid is said to visit during winter storms.

"Like most young girls growing up, I always wanted to be a mermaid," says reigning Miss Mermaid UK, 25-year-old Grace Page, from Reading.
"I've always had a passion for singing, and, since a young age I've loved having long naturally blonde hair, and the sea fascinates me - so creating a career around actually performing as a mermaid just made so much sense.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.what makes mermaids so damn sexy
i used to have a huge print of bob carlos clarkes paint me with water in the upper floor
Remembering I read somewhere that during the Victorian era mermaids were depicted as human-like... a bit lower, I looked for images, and I found these quite not safe for work examples:I hate the modern mermaids, a proper mermaid should be topless and lure men to their deaths using their feminine Willie's....or something
