A Big Eating Day!
03 August 2013 | Warren Island, Islesboro, Maine
Again we woke up to a very rainy day. The SSCA Potluck was scheduled for 11:00am at a house over on the land close to where we are anchored. It was still raining quite a bit at 11:00am but our hot dog pie was all ready to go. We put on our rain gear and wrapped the pie up and jumped in the dinghy and headed across the water to the town dock. The rain was slowing down by the time we got the dinghy all tied up and walked the quarter mile to the house where the party was. They had set up the food in the two car garage and there were plenty of places to escape the rain. The food was plentiful and delicious. Eventually the sun came out and we were able to take off our rain gear. We had a good time talking to some new friends and some people we had met prior to this weekend.
We got back to the boat in time to get ready for our friends that live nearby to come for dinner. They were considering coming to the Gam but that didn’t work out for them. He works at a boat yard in Islesboro and someone had offered him some lobster and crabs. Bill had invited them to the boat for dinner and they said sure – they would bring the lobster and crabs. We had just bought a pot big enough to cook four lobsters in but hadn’t had an opportunity to use it yet. This was even better – now we had someone who actually knew how to cook them to show us. The picture above is our friend Tig showing his family one of the lobsters. He threw the lobsters in the pot one at a time, each time putting the lid back on. I guess the pot was pretty full and the lobsters weren’t quite dead yet because we heard one of the lobsters kick and the lid of the pot flew up. Tig grabbed the lid and held it down for a few minutes and then it was quiet again. We all enjoyed eating our lobster feast –even the kids. They may look little but they were pretty talented with the lobster tools we bought for an occasion just like this. They had spent the winter living on a boat in the Bahamas so they were no strangers to lobster.
We are not quite sure what we are going to do next. We were certain we would go to Nova Scotia for the rest of August but we don’t think we will now. There is a lot of Maine we still would like to check out. We think we will stay here for another day at least though and just relax. The last few days have been pretty crazy.
