The weather has delayed our first lobster feed. Today we got a break around midday and scrambled around to get everything in place. I say "we', but it was really the Dunns and the Roths that pulled it all together. It was the simple version...no clams, no pie, just a lobster, an ear of corn, grapes and Bing cherries for desert with a mint to finish. $23.00 per couple! At this time of year the lobsters are all hard shells. They have not yet molted into the new soft shells. The down side is that it takes more effort/strength to crack the shells. You need tools. Bare hands are not sufficient. The good news is that they taste better, have less water, and the meat is firmer. I had a female, and the roe was just heavenly.
School is going well. The days are long. Six hours is a long time at the blackboard. In addition there have been many hours of preparation time. I think that the kids are learning some geometry. At least the teacher in charge of the math summer school, who spoke with some of them, says she thinks that they are "getting it". I hope so. It has been more work than I anticipated; plus it starts at 0730 each day!
Cindy arrives tomorrow for a week. We can't wait.
