So it’s the longest day of the year, you probably had a long weekend chuck full of outdoor activity fun, but you’re still thinking:

What can I do tonight in honor of Summer Solstice?

Well here’s the answer. Out at Ocean Beach (South of Taraval Street) there will be a Solstice gathering complete with bonfire to help you reclaim this blessed ritual :)

More from Reclaiming.org:

Solstice, Monday 21 June, Ocean Beach south of Taraval Street (aka “Ye Olde Site”). Gather 7:30pm, ritual 8pm.

Join us for Summer Solstice at Ocean Beach as we gather at the end of the longest day of the year. We celebrate the light and honor the turning of the Wheel of the Year back toward the darkness.

Please bring clean firewood (firewood is always welcome – no pallets, nails, construction material, plywood, painted or treated wood), warm clothes, food or non-alcoholic drink to share, and a towel if you want to plunge.

Transit: You’ll want to take the scenic L-Taraval Muni train from downtown BART stations. Ride to end of line, walk a block or two to the beach, and look for group of beach-loving pagans – possibly a few blocks to the left, depending on beach conditions.

Maps: search for “Taraval and Great Highway, San Francisco 94116″. Gathering will be somewhat south of this intersection.

For more information and an update on the bonfire situation, contact sfrpc@yahoogroups.com
