Black & White Wednesday ~ "The Mermaid"

HHI Mermaid body classic vintage

"Who would be
A mermaid fair,
Singing alone,
Combing her hair
Under the sea,
In a golden curl
With a comb of pearl,
On a throne?

I would be a mermaid fair;
I would sing to myself the whole of the day;
With a comb of pearl I would comb my hair;
And still as I comb'd I would sing and say,
Who is it loves me? who loves not me?

~Alfred Lord Tennyson take from "The Mermaid"

These photos were taken when we were vacationing on Hilton Head Island.

I have always thought mermaids magical...I was drawn to this sculpture at Shelter Cove Harbour.



"For whatever we lose (like a you or a me),
It's always our self we find in the sea."

I love these photos and all of the rest from your vacation. Looks like you had a great time.

My daughter got the conch ring at Belk's on the sale table. Isn't it great?! I also got a different style conch ring but mine is a brass toned one by Fossil. They had all of their summer jewelry marked really low. :)
