bonfire at the 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.
