Petanque in Lexington, NC

Gary & Shirley discovered pétanque while RV'ing in Florida two years ago, got hooked and built one of the most beautiful courts I have ever seen, just outside Lexington. They heard of our move and - surprise! - invited me for a get together with others we have been corresponding with on the internet.
What a way to spend my first Sunday in NC!!
Excellent surface (with a touch of crushed oyster shell), a gorgeous setting overlooking rolling hills, scoreboard, the right amount of shade, flood lights, an antique galvanized tub to cool drinks, ball racks, you name it - it's there.
Not to mention the other friendly folks: Christine, Judy, David, Bob & Josh.
We were 8 enthusiasts today, and are hoping for a couple more on a next round in Winston-Salem on Sunday Oct 29.
