We decided we would go all out! Paul researched the story behind the day, Guy Fawkes and crew, the plot, the reasoning, the capture and finally the death penalty. I took full responsibility of food and organisation, two areas I can excel in. The night began with stocking up on treats, marshmallows, digestive biscuits, chocolate and sweet potatoes. We then set to work on making a 'Guy' with limited funds (available for burning) and limited materials, we made the guy using 3 pairs of socks, nail varnish for decoration and ribbon. Quite the Guy...

Once the fire wood was collected and boy did the captain surpass all expectations, making the fire began. We originally made a small but size-able fire for cooking the potatoes and making smores (smores are American= biscuit or Graham cracker if avaliable- no idea what this is, chocolate on top, melted marshmallow atop of that, sandwiched by another biscuit). However, in a self-admittedly egotistical fashion Chris decided to make a monster of a fire in clear view of passers by upon a beach whereby it is illegal to do such things, I love testosterone!

The rest of the night went something like.....

Burning the guy:
Sparklers, I love them so..
Firework wars, yes, irresponsible, yes, ridiculous an idea, yes, pretty fun and worrying to watch:

This truly was one of the greatest Bonfire nights I have experienced.
Last but by no means least, at the strike of 12 we got to wish Tawny a happy birthday and from there the birthday weekend celebrations for this wonderful lady commenced....
|Happy Birthday you delightful thing you.|
