I really didn't think our beach bonfire surrounded by sand was a big deal. Evidently, the authorities do not like people making their own glass using public land. The old, "if we let everyone do that, there would be no sand left on the beach" thing! I think the seagulls snitched on us because we wouldn't let them have our bag of chips!
