Beach Fires Maybe Banned?

Will this soon be a thing of the past?
Will this soon be a thing of the past?
Last week someone pointed to my Beach Fire painting  (“S’more Fun in San Clemente”) and said, “That might soon be only a memory.”  Who would ever have thought that the wonderful and soul warming tradition of sitting around a beach bon fire at the end of a summer day would ever not be possible?  The fun, the food, and the romance of those times are deep in the memories of every beach goer.  Surfing, swimming or playing volleyball and then coming in and sitting around the fire and eating a freshly cooked burger, hot dog or corn on the cob or any other creative culinary delight and then later marshmallows or full on s’mores.   Most memorable was sitting in front of the fire with your girl or boyfriend wrapping a towel or blanket as the moon rises and moves across the sky.  The whole beach experience will not be the same without them.

The latest?  As per a May 20th Wall Street Journal article the South Coast AQMD board postponed a vote on the ban scheduled for June 7. No new date has been set.

Interested?  Get more information or make your thoughts known to the Board at the South Coast AQMD web site, http://www.aqmd.gov.
