The food most identified with Maine is lobster, and Vinalhaven is said to be the lobster capital of Maine. All the boats in both of these photos are workboats---lobster boats. Time was, in Maine, that they were only allowed to feed lobster to prisoners no more than three times a week. More was considered cruel and unusual punishment. Friends we visited by kayak talk about putting a sign up on their dock when they want lobsters, and how many, and the lobstermen would put them in a cage in the water at $2 apiece.
And, thank you Marian (Potra) for your UA for yesterday's marsh photo.
