Winter Bon Fire/Pot luck


Happy Holidays!!!

Ok well half of the joyous season is over and the weather isn’t joyful but were here and happy as ever.

Come and Enjoy an evening of warmth!

Bonfire for warmth and food to settle our hunger.

Christmas is a few weeks out and our group is shrinking. It is what it is... more warmth for us. Here comes more rain, so be prepared.

The beach will slowly start to change and we’ll see less and less people roaming the beach. Our favorite logs will come and go as the winter sets in.

I’m making this it to be a floating event, meaning large storm fronts that fall within our schedule could move the event one or two days around the storm.

Do realize that only wind and large amounts of rain will move the event. I like a little sprinkle every once in a while.

With the temps dropping the bonfire starts to feel warm.

So gather up the family and come down and enjoy an evening of fun and friendship.

Kids highly enjoy it and they seem to eat a lot and have great fun.

Mukilteo water front park is slowing down. The lack of sun will make the beach less active giving more solitude.

Bonfire after bonfire were attracting more and more people, pulling them out of the house and stuffing their faces then hurtling them up by the fire.

Yet I have never heard of any complaints, well ok just one.

So come down and enjoy our 25th bonfire of the season, enjoy some great tasting food and meet some new friends.

Our sun is going to bed earlier and earlier, darkness is setting in and the bonfire feels better and better. The ferry lights are now giving us the twinkle that we all love and our friendly sea lions are out and about chasing the salmon.

We last till 10pm that is when the park closes. Strictly Enforced.

I'll bring the firewood and I'll stop off and pick up some stuff to grill.

Everyone come on down and bring some grub and let's get warm by the fire.

Dress warm carry rain gear as a last resort along with flashlights.

Pot luck items-


Everyone should contribute an item in some way, bring something that will be enjoyed.

Dispersible items, paper towels, cups, plates can be purchased at Costco very cheep.

I have enough utensils that will last for awhile.

Please post what you are bringing so we don’t get 10 bags of chips again.

Remember if your item isn’t eaten it’s not because no one likes it, there’s just plenty to eat.

    Get ready for the wind and the rain, what the heck it's Washington right.
    The truck is loaded and ready so lets all meet under the covered area next to the bathrooms there in the park.
    because of the weather I only want to have the pot luck grill going for two hours. There is a short distance between the food and the bonfire, Were having the bonfire in the pit closes two the bathrooms.
    I get off work at 4pm in seattle, I'll be pulling in at 5pm or close to that.
    I up dated the items I have and the Items we need please take a look.
    Dress warm!!!
    Glad to see we have new members toughting out the weather I can't wait to meet everyone..
