A Trip not taken #25

By handlerstudio  
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I was in a Citizens' Climate Lobby conference most of the day yesterday....just back from a 24 mile bike ride...got caught in a rainstorm on the way back. Ok to ride in the cold, to ride in the rain, but not in a cold rain. This was a warm rain...not at all unpleasant....cooling...until it got heavy and started thundering. Dan and I tucked under a tent by a church to wait out the worst. Off shortly to the swim club we belong to (the sun is out now), and a CCL Book Club tonight....the book...Dumping in Dixie...the bible of the environmental justice movement.

So, these photos....leaving the Maine Maritime Museum (will return to it tomorrow)...this is on Rt.1...the coastal highway (that the tourists take...scenic and slow). My offering for Silly Sunday....the lobster that ate the store....Rt 1 actually runs from Fort Kent, Maine (We saw the northern start of Rt. 1) all the way down the Atlantic Coast to the Florida Keys, to Key West. Between Boston and NY, it becomes the Boston Post Road.

Great images and narrative, we can't get "real lobsters" where I live, all that's sent from the east coast are the ones called "caners", still fresh but small, even in the best restaurants. You have to know someone from Nova Scotia or Newfoundland to sent some to you and then you only invite very special people over to share with, or not tell anyone.

You know, Sandy, as a younger person, the shellfish I grew up eating was lobster, in New Jersey...and then when I started sailing on the Chesapeake Bay, I discovered Blue Crabs. I love blue crabs, with Maryland Old Bay Seasoning...or soft shells, which I sauté with black pepper and lots of garlic....lobster is so rich..for me a delicacy to eat once in a while...but crabs.....

Does that big, ugly monster sitting on top of things remind you of anyone, Peter?

Now - what is it that you do with a lobster, before eating?

That would be enough to put kids off from trying lobster for the rest of their lives. They should have stopped at v2

Family run restaurants are the best ....we must support them before they all go bankrupt during COVID ! !
Love the salty old dog up on the balcony Peter ...Now that would be some drive ..from Maine down to Key West ...
Best regards
