Away at the beach on vacation, I discovered this wonderful thing on a bay side beach. Everything in it is natural, so when the bay tide eventually takes it away, it won’t add anything to the bay that shouldn’t be there.
I asked on a Face Book page for locals in the town it’s in, whether anybody had any info about it, and no one did. So it’s not a thing that locals do frequently.
The central part does look like a representation of a stick figure. Somebody………..
Is it a shrine, that maybe someone died near there? Or an offering to the spirit of the water? An offering and plea for the safety of the commercial fisherman who fish the ocean around that whole area every day?
I will never know. Only those who placed it there will know, and the recipient to whom it was directed. I will just know that I felt honored to be able to see it and understand that it was beautiful, obviously very important, and that it took a lot of thought and care to place it there, along the edge of the water.
