a mythical sea creature with the head and trunk of
a woman and the tail of a fish, conventionally depicted
as beautiful and with long flowing golden hair.

Initially, I thought that this swimmer looked a little

like a mermaid struggling in the wild surf of the day.

Zooming in, however, it appears that again I was incorrect…


…as I was when I first viewed this statue

of a girl in a wetsuit from


Stanley Park.
