January 4th: Yemaya Beach Offering

Our seventh annual beach offering to the Goddess Yemaya. Eight honored Yemaya and the land/ocean spirit that is The Jersey Shore in a traditional manner, in a special ritual led by Deb. Workshop beforehand in New Brunswick to make melon boats and offerings. The water was blue and calm, the waves very low, much like the Caribbean! Compare these photos to our Manannan beach ritual, where the ocean was its North Atlantic self. Photos by Bob and Ed.
