Ariel looks like she has arisen, like Venus out of the waves with a softer face and watery eyes.In fact she washed up in Wollongong Harbour and made her way to Maccas after watching the bright lights for many months a few hundred metres from the shore, after she found a $20 note floating in the water. Kindly passersby helped her back into the sea – getting around on a fishtail on land is a bit trickier than first thought.
