Nothing Says Summer Like A Beach Fire!

This was our view on Tuesday night, looking east towards Blake Island and West Seattle.  
What do you think?  
Not too bad?  Roaring flames, high-tide waves lapping at the bulkhead, 
sailboats coming in to tie up after a day of cruising Puget Sound, 
an occasional salmon jumping...

Hot sun setting behind the Olympic Mountains while
 sand pipers call out to each other, barely skimming the top of the water
 feasting on early evening summer critters (bugs!).... 

Great night to sit in lawn chairs close to the fire, while 
breathing in salt air and driftwood smoke. 
Holding hands and sipping red wine out of coffee cups 
with our fingers sticky from burnt-blackened marshmallows, 
crumbling graham crackers, melted Hershey's bars.  

I would say, just about perfect...

I love where we live and what we have around us. The idea of a beach fire is just a wonderful idea. Might have to think of a beach to do that on soon.
Thanks Maya! :)

I agree - hoping to have one this weekend at our place.
It was so nice to see you - hope the rest of your visit is wonderful.

I love bonfires on the beach, I have fond memories of many from my childhood growing up in Southern California.

Wine, s'mores and holding hands, it doesn't get any better than that!

Relax and Live at the Beach Every Day of the Year!
