Mermaid in Ireland
Mimi and the North Atlantic.
Not a confrontation, no. More of a temporary alliance.
The mighty ocean offered to temporarily tame its normally feisty waves so that we could go in for a dip. The 'we' did not include the Tontons Cannettes, who treat all forms of water with extreme suspicion.

She needn't have worried. They watched the spectacle from the comfort of their foldable camping chairs.
