‘Golden path painted by the rising sun’ nice use of words to describe how the sun reflected off the ocean swells. I always like it when I encounter a new use of words, phrases, or even sentences.
I never read a story with a merman in it! This merman barters in songs instead of money in the undersea world.
A nice entertaining story with Nekke, the merman, and Mary, the boat owner, discussing mostly music and they sing to each other. Mary’s dad passed away, and Mary bought the boat which she feels is her dad in a spiritual way.
