The Selkie Wife

“The Selkie Wife”

The Selkie is a mythical creature who lives in the
sea as a seal and on land as a human.
If her pelt is taken and hidden whilst she
is in human form, she can never return to the sea,
unless the skin is found again and because her
true home is in the sea, she can be found gazing
longingly at the oceon for many hours.

Selkie from the old Scots word selich,
from Old English seolh meaning seal.
