Easy Like Sunday Morning

      1. It was a RARE event, Shannon. As a matter of fact, we have never been to Cook’s without the kids. Usually I’m chasing them around the rocks, begging them not to jump into the cold ocean.

      1. Curly Carly

        I’m all the way down in Texas. Not exactly a quick trip, but hopefully I can find time to make it up there one day. Even though I lived in Alaska as a kid, I don’t think I’ve ever had lobster. I would love to try it in Maine.

      2. I just read Shannon’s comment on your blog about the fact that you haven’t had lobster before.

        I am ashamed to admit this but, I’m not a big fan. I know, I know. If it’s in something else, like stuffed haddock or a stew– I will eat it. And my entire family are lobster fanatics. Every summer we have a big lobster bake and they sit around the table, breaking legs and cracking open tails, lobster juice flying everywhere. Blech. To me it kinda tastes like rubber dipped in melted butter. I’m more of a crabmeat fan. Take some crab, mix it up with a little mayo, grill it on a sourdough bun with some buttah…Delicious!

      3. I only eat lobster when someone else pays for it (I’m VERY cheap). In other words, if it’s a group meal, someone else is paying, AND there’s lobster on the menu, I’m ordering lobster! Mm….butter and fresh garlic. I could eat two tails. No, three.

        But crab? I’ll buy that. It’s like Gulf Coast chicken, only you catch them with (guess what?) chicken. Also delicious with butter and garlic.

        Come to think of it, anything tastes good with butter and garlic. Going to get some now to dip my apple in…

        1. You sound like me. I will only have lobster if someone else bought it, cracked it and dug out all the meat. Even then I might not eat it but I try to because everyone keeps telling me how expensive it is so it must be good.

    1. Maybe you should stop by Maine during your trek across America, Joe! My husband came very close to ordering lobster yesterday, but he felt too lazy to go about cracking it and digging out the meat.

  1. Your part of world is really beautiful Darla. And you are a really good photographer. I hope now it’s time to revive your old photo blog. If I am not wrong than you had a photo blog previously, right?

    1. I can’t believe you remembered that (or even knew about) my photo blog! Thanks. Yes, I am quite the amateur. I was pretty obsessed with photography for a short while. Still waiting to get a good camera and lens one day…. πŸ˜€

      1. Darla do not forget to buy a camera with ‘buy one get one free offer’. I will not mind if you will gift that free one to me. πŸ™‚ Even I am waiting for a good camera & lens. Most of the photo I post in my blog are actually from my cell phone camera.

        1. Your photos are wonderful. I have a camera on my little iPad that takes some great pictures. Technology is amazing these days. I have a Canon xsi and I do love it, I also have a great little 50 mm lens that creates some nice shots. i don’t have photoshop but I do use the free Picasa and it works great.

      2. Darla same here. I also have a cannon and I also use only Picasa. I hope you are using the latest version, it’s got lots of new added features. I was not aware of that one, until Picasa in my laptop got updated by chance.

    1. I’ll pack you up some lobstah tails and ship ’em to ya pronto! We are so used to lobster here, it’s pretty commonplace… ranks right up there with McDonald’s chicken nuggets (see Angie’s current post)

  2. Ooh, Lovely, Darla. I need to head up there soon — probably in June.. But I can’t believe you don’t like lobstah. Or that you prefer the lakes to the ocean!

    1. I suppose the ocean is so commonplace considering I grew up in Freeport, about five minutes from it. I still LOVE the ocean, but the lakes are easier to swim and fish in. So when you come up here, we’ll go out for some lobstah?

      1. Mount Rushmore, hiking, fishing, hot air balloon rides and bears! I’m actually pretty excited; it’s a step up from Nebraska’s corn fields and occasional rolling hill…

      2. That does sound much more exciting than corn. I remember when I drove across the mid-west I kept thinking, “damn! there sure do have a lot of endless corn fields here” I think I dreamed about corn fields at night.

  3. Gorgeous! It’s funny how the east and west coasts have such a different flavour to them, even though they’re both oceans. We don’t have the lobster cages out here, but we do have scenic piers and lots and lots of boats. Thanks for sharing these pics!

    1. I know exactly what you mean. The west coast is completely different. Even the rocks and sand look different to me out there. Plus the ocean is on the ‘wrong’ side, took me a year to get used to that. haha! I remember the Washington/Oregon coast was absolutely gorgeous though! Maine is too, just a different vibe.

  4. Well. I know I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again – you take the most beautiful pictures!! You really do have a special eye for it.

    And when can I come visit?

    1. Thanks, Jules, taking pictures used to be a hobby, I should get back into it.

      Please come visit, you’ve never been up here? Well, I’ve never been to New York City, maybe I can come down there and you can take me to Broadway?

      1. I went to Maine once when I was 15, and fell in love! And actually I did make a quick overnight trip a couple of years ago, because the hub left his guitar (played a show up there) and had to retrieve it, and then we visited a friend in Boston. I was always sure I’d eventually live in Maine…until I fell in love with NYC. So yesssss, if you came that would be awwwwesome. Just name the play – I’m SO there! πŸ™‚

  5. Had to check this post out since I wrote one with the same title this week! Our Sundays looked pretty different. I think that’s because Maine and Park City, Utah are… not the same.
    Love Maine- love the blog.
    Check me out at theusualbliss.com sometime!

    Thanks for sharing, Darla! It looks peaceful…I’m so grateful I get to “visit” places via blogging! πŸ™‚ XOXO-SWM

Tell me about it.
