As the water and ice recede, a few interesting items are left along the small sand beach that is the shore of the Humber.
Having seen coconut shells scattered along the Humber for years, the source was a puzzle. Visions of coconut groves further upriver were easily but reluctantly dismissed. The mystery wasn’t solved until a few years ago when I witnessed an East Indian gentleman throw a something into the river and discovered that it’s customary for Hindus to make sacrifices to the river gods in this way. The following photograph may be of another such item.
I brought the bangle home to examine it but not wishing for bad karma will return it tomorrow. It seems to have been hand carved from bone or horn. As long as it’s biodegradable along with the coconut, it shouldn’t be a problem.
