Quite awhile ago I read the Mermaid's chair and at the time I was planning another doll, I had visions of my mermaid chair as floating in the water. I still haven't figured out how to do this in reality but my vision is still exciting to me. Lately, I saw the movie http://www.amazon.ca/Mermaid-Chair-Sue-Monk-Kidd/dp/0755307623/ref=sr_1_6/702-9872027-8728834?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1188270052&sr=8-6
on tv, it was staring Kim Bassinger and a great deal of it was filmed in B.C., although I have to confess I don't know where the beach was located.
Maggie,http://magstitch.blogspot.com/ mentioned on her blog that The Time Traveller's Wife, http://www.amazon.ca/Time-Travelers-Wife-Audrey-Niffenegger/dp/0676976336/ref=pd_bbs_1/702-9872027-8728834?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1188272458&sr=8-1was a favorite. It is a favorite of mine as well, I understand it is being made into a movie staring Eric Bana.
