Bubble, Bubble, Toil And…

SHRIMP!

Howard and Linda asked if the group would enjoy a good ol’ Shrimp Boil.  For some reason, everyone loved that idea.  So first thing in the morning, Howard and I set off to a local seafood house to get some of those tasty little critters.   You know it’s fresh when the fishing boat is tied up right in front of the store.

Of course, we had some other items to do before dinner time.  One was to get a group photo of the whole gang next to some large beach chairs down by the campground office.  We had a few couple pictures first.

(Note that Mike and Terri were in proper Halloween attire)

Then the whole gang gathered around and in the chairs for the group photo, graciously helped by two of the park rangers who took pictures with everyone’s cameras.

So much for pictures, then it was on to the important stuff…dinner!

Chef Linda worked her magic and tended to boiling the delectable chow.

Not only shrimp, but sausage,

as well as corn, potatoes and shrimp.  Linda dished out the food to large bowls.

Looks rather yummy, doesn’t it?

For some reason, none of the food lasted very long!  :c)

  2. Clever title. Now that's a meal that sounds like it could be an annual Halloween tradition. Gotta have that fresh shrimp off the boat though. Lucky you.
