It was bumpy getting here ....

but it was so worth it!!
Just to see my mom's smiling face and her excitement was worth the traveling.

From Boston airport I was sent over to this little bugger.
Which actually I rather enjoy.
It always makes a journey feel like you are heading for an adventure
to some far out of the way place.
I was sitting right next to this one and only escape door.
It might have been valuable if perhaps I had a parachute
in my huge handbag.
No worries.
They fly pretty low,
and I am a good swimmer.

One of the passengers sat next to the pilot.
I was in the third row - the last set of seats.
Very comfy.
No seat belts really...
something that resembled dental floss.

The first thing I needed to make clear was
that I wanted lobsta' for dinner...
several dinners.
So this morning we headed down the street
where mom lives and really got two gorgeous 2 pounders for $13 bucks.
Pretty sweet,
but not half as sweet as the meat on a super fresh lobster

See the pond in front of this house.
This lobsterman stores his catch in the cold pond.
Pretty convenient.

But we went down to the end -
our favorite lobster pound.
Yes, that's mom....
I was picking this gorgeous yellow
blooming moss on the rocks for my mom.
Only to transplant it on to her limestone rocks at home.

Here is the yellow moss.
I hope it takes.
This is where we got the lobsters.
I took a shot looking down to the dock.
It made me dizzy.

There is Terry our official lobster man.
and...he either had a terrible twitch in his eye,
or he was actually winking at me.

Then we drove into Rockland
and there was the weekly farmers market.
Very Folksy.
I liked it.
Everyone makes and sells organic.
We had the most fabulous salad
from the greens we bought
and brought home.....

But, nothing can beat these guys.
oh ....i forgot
I woke up to fresh pop-overs.
Mom makes the best.

    Cheers!... to keeping it real.

  3. So happy you are with your mom and I can only imagine how thrilled she must be that you are there!! Lobsters, now you are speaking my langauge!! Is she in Maine? Whereabouts? My sister bought a place up there, we might be going in August. and I have eating lobsters for 6 straight days on my mind, I cannot lie. Looks wonderful and so peaceful, enjoy Renee!!
