The Festival (Sold)

 A friends daughter dressed as a mermaid at Hirtles Beach.

In Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia, Canada, every year, we have The Scarecrow Festival.  There is something pre-Halloweenish about the whole thing. People and businesses grace their homes with these amazingly creative scarecrows of every kind. Not the ordinary "hang in the corn field" type. I have a great respect for those, don't get me wrong. However, the artistic flair of the ones during this weekend  are second to none. Every year I add to my own display. I have (of course) a mermaid. Over the past few years I have become more and more attached to her. The first year, she was single. The following year, I decided she would have a child mermaid . I watch as the tourists snap photos of her. I thought for next year, perhaps I will introduce a "toy boy" merman.
