Photo's of J.B.'s Spring Kickoff get together
Belle River Louisiana 2006.
Numbered the photos so Names and info can be added
by J.B. or those that know !
Will post additional 35MM photos in a few days when they are developed.
Belle River is a quaint Bayou town in south central Louisiana- Cajun Country- surrounded by sugar cane fields, tall pine, oak and cypress trees, some of the old plantations still remain that remind you of a time in history at least a century ago. The Old Bateau's and the popping sound of the one and Two cylinder old marine engines echoing across the river also makes you think you have stepped back in time.
The warm southern hospitality, folks getting together to enjoy talking about the old engines, running their bateau,s and the good food was just a delight !
Thanks to Bob Legnon, John & Jean Smeintana for showing us around and for the wonderful day !
