Great Night For A Fire

Family_bonfire_on_the-Beach_OceanCity

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
  • blankets
  • chairs
  • graham crackers
  • chocolate
  • drinks
  • hot dogs
  • sticks
  • drinks
  • 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!)
