The Mermaid Island
Corfu is a mermaid shaped island! As you look at the satellite image of her the clearer she becomes. Can you see her? Her slender legs, her well-formed knees, her mermaid’s tail? Can you see her rounded breast, her human face and flowing hair? A beautiful mermaid like being rising out of the waters of the Ionian Sea.
