In which there was a bonfire

This will be a quick post, mostly because I want the pictures up because I love them so. A few weeks ago, Jeff and I went camping and it was horrible and rained, so we didn’t use the firewood we brought along. Since then it’s been rolling around the back of the Jeep and tonight we were able to finally burn it.

We headed out to Golden Gardens in Ballard to snag a fire ring right after work so we could get together with the Junior League girls in my small group and their menfolk. Can I just say how much I love these women? They are one of my favorite things about Seattle, hands down. I’m so fortunate we were brought together and given our little group name, The Bumblebees:

It was a good thing Jeff and I got there when we did because there were only two fire spots left, and we were able to get the one closer to the water. Someone even tried to come and latch on to ours before they knew we had a group coming (sorry Gus!). Since we were close by to the restaurant when we drove in, we had Paseo sandwiches for dinner before setting completely up. There would be pictures of those, but I ate mine too fast.

The weather started out cloudy, but started to clear around sunset.

I love this beach

Kayaks and Sailboats. I love this beach.

We made s'mores and hotdogs and drank wine and beer.

Laughed

…laughed,

Talked and watched the sunset over the Sound

and talked and watched the sunset beyond the Sound and far distant Olympics:

So thankful of the friendship of these wonderful women.

And sunsets and bonfires.

And sunsets and beaches and bonfires.

And good company.

And good love.

We lasted until 10:00pm, even though there was still some faint light peaking from behind the Olympics. Love Seattle summers.

Fun note: Jeff went to the car to get a lighter after I had forgotten it. Before he got back I actually had the fire going pretty well after finding an old ember in the coals of our pit, much to his surprise. To his credit, he adamantly acknowledges that I am the Boy Scout in our relationship.
