bonfire at the beach

Bonfire on Long Island Beach


























another great way to spend time at the beach. I don't know if bonfires are allowed at other beaches on long island but you can do this on at least one montauk beach and a lot of people like to take advantage of it. there are rules one must abide by. you have to make sure you are far enough away from the dunes, you need a bucket you can fill with water near your fire & you have to dig a pit to start your fire in. the town has a guy drive up and down the beach in order to enforce all these rules. they aren't jerks about it either. for instance, one time we were lacking in something and they didn't fine us, they just told us what to do. I hope everyone who is reading this isn't working today. whatever the case may be, happy labor day to you and yours.

A bonfire and bbq pretty much symbolize the summer. I guess you can have both til the fall months without a problem.

There's such a feeling of intimacy around a bonfire. It's really nice.

A bit late, but Happy Labor Day. This is a great shot. We can have beach fires on the Oregon beaches, too, and there's nothing quite so wonderful smelling! My husband has this week off from work and we're doing day trips - hopefully one to the beach.

I hope everyone had a nice labor day.
Kelly a bonfire in Maine sounds exquisite. I used to go camping in Maine when I was a kid, it's so beautiful there.
Thanks Marcel, I plan on going back too.
Thank you too Pietro.
Kitty, it's true, that's what I like about them. It's a nice way to relax with company.

Lydia, you're not too late! I hope you have a great time with your husband. We just did a similar vacation over here. It's nice taking the time to check out what's close enough to drive too in one day. Have fun!
