Thread: MERMAID SPOTTING

  1. #101
    I realize these aren't nearly as wonderful as most of the others here, but living where I do, we don't have the beautiful clear blue waters and etc. that are ideal for mermaid sightings. We do, however, have a few incredibly beautiful spots here in the Great Lakes (not all conducive to swimming because of water currents and water temp) though... and I just had to share. These were taken during my honeymoon back in 2006. We spent 2 wks waterfall hiking in Michigan's UP. We had to do a lot of strenuous hiking to access these locations, but it was SO worth it!

    LOL, they are beautiful RisingMermaid, but unfortunately those waterfalls are not good locations for swimming with or without a tail. As much as I wanted to swim each of them, it was very obvious that it was too dangerous with such heavy water currents. We walked the rivers for many of them, but when we neared the waterfall locations we had to go rock hopping or stick to the shoreline. More than once I was knocked over by the current in a foot of water, just trying to stand in it with aqua shoes on... it was that strong.
    Here's a pic of me sitting on some rocks alongside one of the tiny falls. If you notice I only had my feet in the water and it was difficult to even do that and not get pulled in. Name:  honeymoon 237.jpg

    Maybe this video will help show how dangerous it would have been... this is from the waterfalls shown in the 1st & 3rd pics that I posted.https://www.facebook.com/dawn.moneyh...ideo_processed

    The Great Lakes are really under appreciated when it comes to beautiful locations and scenery.

    I've been there! It's usually not that pristine and empty though. Last time I was there, there was a load of tourists all over the place (I say that like I wasn't a tourist myself, lol)

    Like wading depth. They range from about waist-deep to ankle deep. Most of the pools are pretty shallow. The "sacred pool" is pretty deep, but it's not in the actual cotton-walled pool area.

    WOW! Is that gorgeous! That would make for some eyecatching mer-photos!

    Another shipwreck location (oddly enough, very close to the last one) with some much older, wooden vessels deliberately beached as a breakwater. I actually couldn't find any photos of it at all, so obviously not many people go there, just the occasional kayaker or SUP'er.

    Sinking Castle in Lake Garda, Italy, seems like it would be a spectacular place for a photoshoot!
