Summer is truly on its way! Attended my first bonfire on the beach of the season last week! Two friends came back from school and it was a great way to have everyone come out to say hello! I stayed almost two hours in the wind, and came home smiling and smelling like wood smoke.
I don't know if bonfires are very common around the country or not. They are a staple of Alaskan summers, and unfortunately can become out of control if alcohol is around. They are a great and inexpensive way to have fun on the long Alaskan days after work.
