It's about time! We finally got around to another lobster feed. This is the time of year when it is hard to find a hard shell. Most of the crop are "shedders", or recently molted lobsters, which have only begun to grow into their new, larger (and softer) shells. Nonetheless, Dick Roth found the lobsters, and the local corn is ready. Throw in a few bags of chips and some brownies and ice cream for dessert, and a great party can be had. Doing it on the shore of Penobscot Bay adds a certain je ne sais quois to the festivities.
Here we are all set up in the gravel in front of the Roths motorhome. The wind kept blowing out one of the burners, so we moved everything around into the lee of their rig.
Soon all the pots were boiling. The larger pots got six lobsters and the smaller one got three.
Twelve minutes later they were ready to come out.
We all have been doing this long enough that we have it down to a science that even includes soapy finger bowls and a towel when finished.
