Lobster Lunch

 We have now had lobster pie and lobster rolls but have waited to find the real thing.

After checking with park rangers and some friendly locals, this seems to be the number one place for lobster.

 This is a real Maine lobster pound.  Filled with sea water, the pots are fired up from 8am to 10pm every day.

 A quick check with these experienced seafood eaters confirmed that this is indeed the place for the best tasting lobster.

                           It didn’t take long for us to find them inside either!

                     After a little advice from the owner’s son--

                          --we picked out our own and had them weighed.

    Almost three pounds.  Our diets will have to start tomorrow.

First placed into a mesh bag, they are then dropped into the boiling sea water.

                                         Our bag is numbered 32.

And in no time at all we have our steaming bag of fresh Maine lobsters!

                                 They tasted as good as they look.

                                  Judy getting ready for a real feast.

                     She decided to take her jacket off and give this her best shot.

It was so good that we finished it off with a batch of steamed clams.

   Dip those clams in salt water and then into hot melted butter and you’re in sea-food heaven.

                          The end of another good day in Maine.
