After our Colonial Anglican Church worship experience, we gathered under the shade trees for an authentic after-church picnic! Gathering for a meal after worship is historically accurate! However, our picnic menu included items the colonists would not have known, like soda, ice cubes, salads, potato chips, humus, fried chicken, folding chairs, mosquito repellent and paper plates! The grounds of St. Luke’s stretch out around the old brick church structure, and include a lovely Gift Shop, an extensive cemetery with lovely statuary and a large lawn. We set up our tables under the trees, enjoyed a slight breeze, wonderful fellowship and fabulous food!
The Rev. Carol Sims and The Rev. Richard Bridgford also explored their priestly roots with a bit of snake handling worthy of the Celtic Isles! Please enjoy the photos, courtesy of J. Rochelle!
