Evening Beach BBQ

Our family along with Godelieve, Tom & Harvey,  took advantage of the beautiful weather and had a lovely evening BBQ at the beach!  Back in Boston you are not allowed to have alcohol or fires at the beach, so we’re totally taking advantage of this!!

First Nils & Tom decided to dig some holes to keep the fire/BBQs out of the wind.

We brought a disposable one, but G&T have this homemade version which essentially is a deep pan, with an oven rack – great idea so we’ll do the same once I get the pieces.  Though next time, I’ll bring along our new windscreen from the car boot sale, once I make a bag to carry it.

The kids spent time in & out of the water – it was a lovely day.  We’ll do it again, but arrive a bit earlier and set up a camp fire to keep warm. Oh and we’ll make Smores, American-style.

Drinking flamingo blood!

I didn’t bring my good camera, rather my Fuji underwater one, so the shots are not the best, but still it was nice to capture some of it on film.  A bonus though is that this camera has a video feature, so I have posted a couple of them here too.

Author: Stars Stripes and Mayonnaise

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
