This mermaid statue appeared in Cayucos in about 2005. It is located in front of a realty office and has become the inspiration for an annual mermaid parade in Cayucos.
The sea-shell bracelets, the hair clearly suspended in water and the special folds around the eyes are unique touches it shares with the Ventura mermaids.
Cayucos has a rich calendar of events every year, attracting many tourists. There are numerous shops with a wide variety of mermaid-related art, and the annual events include the aforementioned mermaid parade, a month-long mermaid art exhibit all across town, a Mermaid Ball on the Pier and various other events.
