Great Night For A Fire
Fires on the beach are an amazing experience. Any fire, under the stars, with some friends, is a memorable time, but add the waves, and it becomes magical! Bring all the regular necessities for a fire:
- local firewood
- graham crackers
- hot dogs
- ghost stories
You know the perfect combination for your friends and family – now add the beach –
You will need:
- shovel (you will need to dig a hole)
- pail (you will need to put it out!)
- kindling (wind off the waves sometimes makes it hard to start up. start small.)
- wagon to haul or friend(s) to help😊(REMEMBER: it is NOT like carrying a chair with you, but it is worth it!)
