She followed her dream and never stopped believing in herself, and because she never gave up on her dream Bethany won multiple competitions after the attack and became a well known surfer around the world.

And so the days went on, with the cold-hearted mermaid slowly blossoming into an even stonier princess, until it was time for her to venture into the human world. It was a simple tradition really. On the first day of her sixteenth year, the princess-to-be would sit atop a rock on the surface for a day, and observe life above the sea. It didn’t mean anything much and many just considered it a silly rite of passage, perfectly harmless. So naturally, the king sent his daughter off to the surface with nothing more than a hearty laugh and a pat on the
This contemplation, of which Edna has never experienced in her 28 years of attempting to meet societal norms and expectations, awakens her to her role in the larger scheme of the universe, making her domestic and social obligations seem trivial in comparison. The sea also spurs inner reflection on Edna’s past, when delirious romantic passions controlled her emotions; as she stares at “the water stretching so far away,” she thinks of the “meadow that seemed as big as an ocean” near her childhood home in Kentucky, where she had experienced the

When we arrived, we began the day with a nice and simple horse ride by the beach. None of the horses looked very nice which kind of intimidated me.
When Edna decides to go into the sea, there is a spark inside her and she is awakened. Edna has her first realization of her innermost desires, both intellectually and sexually.

Edna grew up as a respectable woman in Kentucky, a landlocked state with no land connection to the ocean. After settling into marriage with Léonce Pontellier, she moves out to coastal Louisiana and spends summers out in Grand Isle, surrounded by ocean. Grand Isle is where Edna meets Robert, and where she experiences her awakening. While there, Edna begins learning to swim, and as she learns to control the water she in turn discovers that she has agency over her own body.
The birds were chirping, children were laughing, and you could feel the sun tingle on your skin. This was soon ruined by a horrid moment on the beach.
