The picture above was taken from our campsite at Millers Ferry campground near Camden, Alabama. This annual gathering for molded fiberglass trailers of all brands, along with a few of other manufacturing techniques, was in its third year. We arrived last Sunday, the tenth, and spent seven fantastic days with friends, new and old.
Though we had rain Monday, and cool temps through Wednesday, it was a great week. We had a group meal every evening beginning on Wednesday with a chili dump. Everyone brings a pot of homemade, or a can; dumps it in the communal pot; and after a short time of simmering and stirring it becomes a quite tasty meal.
Thursday was gumbo. Prepared each year by some dear friends from the Gulf coast, it is one of the highlights of the week. Here’s Bob getting a little instruction in proper paddle procedure.
The serving line.
Another night was BBQ.
And of course there was the annual pot luck on Saturday. Didn’t get any pictures of the food as there were many strange folk floating around dressed in green.
We also had some fine dulcimer music being played someplace each day.
Along with plenty of laughs to keep thing from getting too serious.
Sally found it to be a totally relaxing week.
So did we……….jc
