As a way to celebrate the end of finals for Winter Quarter, the SQUAD went to Golden Gardens in Ballard for a bonfire and s'mores. We trekked down the insanely steep stairs and made our way to the beach.
It was a typical gray day in Seattle.
And then we tried to start our fire…
The SQUAD shielding the flame from the wind.
A strong start...
Meanwhile, Hunter got the shot.
"CRYSTAL shield it!"
This is symbolic.
After about 15 minutes another beach goer was kind enough to put us out of our misery and doused our firewood in lighter fluid.
It's like lighting the Olympic flame.
Polly attempting to use paper as a marshmallow stick…
After that failed attempt, these fools went to find marshmallow sticks.
Sharon was a bit more innovative and used firewood to roast.
A much needed relaxing night.
