Monday, June 27, 2016 – Saturday we went to Portsmouth, New Hampshire and then on to Kenneybunkport, Maine to eat lobsters. It is a beautiful area, very New Englandy and nautical being right on the Atlantic Ocean. Here’s some of the town.
We saw several of these tall directional signs throughout the area.
The restaurant we chose to eat at was Nunan’s Lobster Hut. We chose them because they catch their own lobster and cook them right there at the restaurant on the ocean. And they were close enough that I wouldn’t be away from work for too long.
Lobster is pretty pricey but we figured this was definitely a once in a lifetime experience eating Lobster in Maine so we splurged. We each ate two lobsters, Roy’s were a pound and a half each. Mine were a pound and a quarter each. They are served with Lays potato chips which seems to be the normal side dish to lobster up here.
We started off with their own brand of Root Beer. Quite delicious.
Then the main course, Main Lobsters!
We were quite full after eating the lobsters and chips. But we saw the folks at the next table get blueberry cobbler a la mode………………Maine has tons of tiny blueberries and that’s what was in our cobbler. Hot blueberries in cobbler and cold delicious vanilla ice cream.
When we were leaving the restaurant Roy discovered the outside screen door to the room where they store the lobsters until they are needed. We went in and they let us take a coy of some of the live lobsters.
Some things we do make me happy and some make Roy happy. This adventure made both of us very happy. What a blessing to be staying all the way in New Hampshire and getting to go into Maine to enjoy their lobsters. Life is so good and God is so great!
The weather here is also amazing. During the evenings and night it’s in the low 50s and during the day in the low 70s. It just doesn’t get any better than that!
Next I’ll share with ya’ll our adventure into Portsmouth, New Hampshire where we saw Strawbery Banke Museum.
Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
