Like most people who grew up with a mild (OK, not mild) obsession with Disney, I've seen Finding Nemo more times than I care to admit.
So, naturally, when I found myself in Sydney last week, I knew I had to venture out to find P. Sherman 42 Wallaby Way.
A couple of years ago, I, like many, was filled with joy when I saw this picture circulating around the internet. COULD IT BE??? COULD IT BE REAL??
It was time to find out. I arrived in Sydney and pulled up Google Maps because how else would I find my way? I typed in the legendary address that is burned into my brain for all eternity and it came up with no results.
But, being the PROBLEM SOLVER that I am, I took out the "P. Sherman" since that's obviously the dentist's name and tried again.
I was feeling disappointed at only finding a retired wolves den, but decided to try my hand at Google Maps the old-fashioned way... ON MY MAC.
I started to question everything about life, but reminded myself to "Just Keep Swimming" just like Dory would have wanted.
I decided to get a closer look at the situation by taking a ferry around the harbor.
It was VERY windy and also surprisingly cold so I had trouble scoping out the situation and looking for clown fish.
No one promised good selfies, only receipts in this P. Sherman address situation.
Finally, the ferry got close to the harbor, and I leaned over the edge of the boat to see if I could spot any fish, turtles, or pelicans to help me on my way.
Exiting the ferry, I was feeling defeated. Then I saw it. The "mine" bird. It was my last chance.
I quickly approached the bird, who I can only assume probably knew Nigel the pelican somehow.
I set aside my doubts from the day and pleaded for help.
But no matter what I did, no bird seemed to know where this place was.
I *finally* admitted defeat, and headed on my way. I really needed Dory to cheer me up at this point.
But then... the impossible happened. There I was, walking up the street from the harbor, when I saw it.
A DENTIST SIGN!!!!!!!! Sure, it isn't on Wallaby Way, or owned by someone named P. Sherman, but I can only assume I found the real dentist office.
TL;DR P. Sherman 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney, does not exist, but this address will never leave your brain anyway.
