Blessing of the Fleet 2011

This past Sunday was Blessing of the Fleet for Mt. Pleasant shrimpers. Every year the clergy of Charleston Seafarer's Ministry come together to this large festival to bless the fleet of shrimp boats so they have good luck shrimping. It is has become very hard for them with this economy as it is their livelihood. They need as much of the Lord's help as they can get. And on top of that.... who doesn't love fresh LOCAL shrimp. As the old saying goes, "Friends don't let friends eat imported shrimp." Here are a few pics none of which I took but you get the idea.

"Winds of Fortune"... she's a local celeb.

Everybody could use a blessing, right?
