MER­MAID SHED DRIFTS 200 MILES FROM FLA. TO LA.

The Denver Post - - NATION & WORLD -

A shed sport­ing a paint­ing of a blond, blue-tailed mer­maid ap­par­ently drifted 200 miles from Florida to south of Louisiana.

The Coast Guard re­leased a photo of the float­ing dock found 180 miles south of Grand Isle, La. Petty Of­fi­cer Travis Magee says sev­eral peo­ple have re­ported see­ing it on Key West, Fla.

A Coast Guard news re­lease says it was re­ported to have bro­ken free from its moor­ing with­out any­one aboard.

The build­ing is green with laven­der trim. The side that would have faced land fea­tures a paint­ing of the mer­maid, a sea tur­tle and an oc­to­pus. Above the blue door on one end, a sign ap­pears to in­clude the word “shed.”

Magee says there’s no re­port of any­one claim­ing own­er­ship.
