It was awesome to be able to cast away our sins from the prior year into the ocean (see little white spots in picture below.) Husband looked handsome in his swim trunks saying prayers from our white Tanach. We each took turns tossing a bread crumb into the sea while saying what we are sorry for that we may have done in the last year. Youngest Son said "I am sorry for knocking over your army men this morning."
And You will cast into the depths of the sea all their sins; You will show kindness to Yaakov and mercy to Avraham, As You did promise to our fathers of old." Book of Michah (Micah) 7:18-20
Tashlich is preferably recited alongside a body of water containing fish, to remind us that just as fish are protected by the water in which they live, we pray to be protected by G-d. Also, just as fish swim freely and can suddenly be caught in a net, so too we can just as helplessly fall into the net of sin. And even as the eyes of fish are always open, so do we pray that G-d too will keep vigilant watch over his people.
Another special Mexico memory.
