The Meribelle Story
Years ago a baby girl was abandoned by her parents and left in a small fishing town. She was raised by the townspeople who were quickly amazed by her beauty and song. The fishermen started to call her Meribelle which means “Beautiful Sea”. Each day the fishermen would bring her their best catch in hopes of winning her love. The women of the town were quickly overcome with jealously. They banished Meribelle to the ocean by turning her into a mermaid. Despite the cruelty of the women, Meribelle was thankful for the fishermen’s kindness. To this day she makes sure that her fishermen friends get the best the sea has to offer.
