There is something sacred and magical about lagoons. Coastal lagoons are ecological powerhouses that support a variety of habitats, making them life-giving, sacred spaces. Together, the open water, water-snaked mudflats, soggy marshes, and the wildlife that comes with it all, create the sacrality and mysticism of a lagoon.
