Where the statue sits we found a pop-up flea market taking place on a Saturday. The vendors set up right in the middle of the statues and made it a little tougher to spot, but created a neat atmosphere. It's right along the beach.

Check out this cool surfer couple statue. It looks like a real girl from a ways off. It makes you want to see if it's real or not.
