Flint River Community Group -- Low Country Shrimp Boil!

The weather was cool and clear -- a perfect evening for our first group of the spring season to arrive! And the perfect night for the second annual Flint River Baptist Church Community Group Low Country Shrimp Boil!
There was a good crowd of folks . . . probably better than forty adults, teens and children running around!
Once the cooking was done, the big pot was emptied out on not one, but TWO picnic tables!
What a spread! This year they had crayfish flown in all the way from Louisiana!
After a little tutorial on how to eat the crayfish, everyone sat down with plates piled high!

After dinner the fellowship started in earnest.  For some it was around the campfire, roasting marshmallows . . . 
And for some it was around the checkerboard!
That was a very spirited game!!

There were even a few brave individuals who pitched tents (in the dark)!
All in all it was a fantastic evening and folks really enjoyed kicking back and enjoying good food, good friends, and good fellowship. As always, we were grateful to be included in such a fun evening!

As Bill, the coordinator of the effort, said last evening, here's to forty more years!
