The pond by our woods had a swimming beach for kids. What swimming beach would be complete without a sea monster? Late in the fall I started making what would end up being three pieces. The idea was to mount them in the water. This had me eventually up to my waist the following Spring, in water that weeks before was frozen solid. We named her Sarah, and she lived in the pond 4 years. When we moved from there, I went out and worked on her one more time. I found bird nests in her head and back sections.
