March 21st, 2012: Spring Equinox Beach Rite

15 attended GOG's First Day of Spring Rite at Point Pleasant Beach. We collected 9-waves water for our grove well. The afternoon was very foggy, very Manannan-like, warm and misty, so mild this year that Manannan lured folks even deeper into the water! Fog and mist were good omens; also saw a cormorant, lots of seagulls. After-- to the Atlantis Diner for our usual post-ritual repast.
