It’s was worth the trip, north or south, on US 1 in Florida to see the Mermaid that suddenly appeared at the site of the former Sebastian dive shop, 1716 US Highway 1, Sebastian, FL . The Mermaid was the final addition to artist Dan Turcotte’s 44 foot riverscape mural on the US 1 facing side of the building. For art lovers, water sports enthusiasts, beach dreamers, just chillin’ out vacationers, and all those in quest of a good myth, Turcotte’s Mermaid and riverscape mural was a must see jewel in downtown Sebastian.
Just as the ocean creeps up and reclaims her treasures on the shore, the mural is gone now, and a newly repainted business occupies the site of Turcotte’s former gallery. But the lovely Mermaid is captured in the photo above as Shot By Ella Photoart, LLC.
