S’MORES ON THE BEACH
A beach bonfire is a time honored tradition California residents and visitors have enjoyed for many years. Most beaches and the bay provide fire pits for free on a first come first served basis and you bring the wood. Call your friends and family sing a song around the bonfire and make s’mores! Please do not forget to extinguish your fire before you leave.
If it is raining outside (which it usually isn't) find a fireplace!
