Warm up Your Evening as the Summer Turns a Little Cooler

As the days begin to shorten a bit, and the evening temperatures start to drop a few degrees, it's time to fire up the barbecue, or get a beach fire going, or to figure out some other way to take a bit of the chill off of the evening. There's something about the smell of a barbecue just as the sun begins to set, and the sound of a meal sizzling on the grill. Even hot dogs cooked on a stick over a fire taste particularly good as the weather cools off a bit, and as more of us have a little more time to relax a little. And don't forget the marshmallows and the s'mores.
If you want to have a beach fire at Herring Cove or on Race Point Beach, be sure to check which areas are designated as appropriate spots for your fire, and be sure to get a permit from the park rangers.
It's nice just to sit by the fire, too, and let the cares of the day fall away as you watch a few flames flicker and dance as the twilight descends. These folks are enjoying the fire pit at the Harbor Hotel, looking out over the beach as a boat glides past the Long Point Lighthouse. What better way to relax as the seasons get ready to change?
