The Yakut people of Sakha Republic in Siberia built a magnificent Serge, a ceremonial hitching post, at Gualala Point Regional Park. The dedication ceremony was quite moving, and the land was blessed by the shaman. We now have a sacred spot in one of our favorite parks. Richard Kuehn took a beautiful photo of the Serge at dawn.
The middle photo shows the shaman approaching followed by the ceremonial dancers. The third photo shows the honored guests receiving a ceremonial drink. I took these photos at the ceremony last month.
We feel very fortunate to have this beautiful Serge here in Gualala. Thanks to Rich for allowing me to share his beautiful photo with you here.
