Day #2, 30 Days of Mermaids!

July 25, 2017

I've heard of and even read accounts of men of old seeing mermaids, telling tales of naked women swimming away in cold water, or coming from the sea to marry a fisherman and start a family... I have also heard the modern explanation that these men were drunk, or hallucinating from a sea-sickness, or since women were not allowed on the boats & being deprived of their company, mistook seals, manatees and the like for beautiful mermaids... And, personally I have always thought this was ... well... too crazy!  I mean, I have a few fisherman in my family and, quite a few, fishermen and women as friends... and even if drunk, they know their craft so well, that there is NO way that would mistake one animal for another!

That has me looking for what the truth behind the Beautiful Mermaid Myth and what did these men REALLY find?
