Bonfire Signals the End of Summer

Thought i'd let you visit our beach BBQ/Bonfire that almost didn't happen because we didn't secure a pit by 6:00 A.M.! (summertime is crazy crowded here in Orange County, Ca)

But thank goodness for friends...we were able to share theirs. We stayed until 10:00 p.m. when the beach closes. We had hamburgers, hot dogs & of course S'mores. For those of you who don't know what that is, it's an American favorite, you HAVE to try it~ (marshmallows, Hershey's chocolate & graham crackers)


Marshmallows (put 1 or 2 on a long coat hanger & cook over an open fire till golden brown)
Hershey's Chocolate Bars (break in half) Graham Crackers (take a cracker & break in half then stick the chocolate on top of 1 of them. Next take the cooked, melting marshmallow set it on the chocolate & take the other cracker, put on top & slide the marshmallow off the coat hanger)

So as summer winds down & school starts on September 1st, this will probably be our last bonfire. I'm always sad for the freedom to end but fall signals football all time favorite sport.

The sun going down on my summer...~sigh~

What a fun way to end the summer season! I'm glad you have good friends who were willing to share their bonfire. I always love the ocean views; great photos.

Lisa, thanks for the recipe for Smore's. They look so good. I can't believe I never tasted one.

end of summer... what a sweet goodbye huh? it looks like you had a great time at your bonfire though! i spent sometime at the beach in the last week that was well needed :) but i went back to santa monica a couple days ago and it was soooo overcast and a bit chilly... it was still fun, but it definitely reminded me that cooler weather is close.


ps you look soooo cute in your new profile picture!
