Golden Gardens

Golden Gardens

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…

A strong start...

After about 15 minutes another beach goer was kind enough to put us out of our misery and doused our firewood in lighter fluid.

After that failed attempt, these fools went to find marshmallow sticks.

Sharon was a bit more innovative and used firewood to roast.
