There is nothing quite as quintessential as stopping for a lobster roll in Maine. Yesterday, as we were passing through New Hampshire heading north for the Easter holiday, Charlie decided it was time to eat. As it happened, we attempted to head into Portsmouth to grab a bite, but, being unfamiliar with the roads (and failing to turn on the GPS) we made a wrong turn. Instead, we found ourselves on the Route 1 bypass and crossing over the Pisquatica River and into Kittery Maine.
As we drove up the highway, we spotted a classic New England structure sporting it’s own lighthouse and were drawn in the front door of Robert’s Maine Grill and Market. It had such a great vibe inside and out.
As a great lunch-time alternative to bread, the crackers and herb cream cheese hit the spot, and the Arnold Palmer was just the right choice for light refreshment.
As they served the lobster rolls, we knew we made the right choice in restaurant. With a side of coleslaw and pickle, the fresh lobster was heaping over the sides of a perfectly toasted frankfurter roll.
Pleasantly full, but not overly stuffed, we paid the bill, ready to continue our journey. As were heading back to the car, we encountered Dan who was picking another lobster out of the tank. Charlie was thrilled to take a look at one of these “alien creatures”, but sadly we’re pretty sure he was destined to become another guest’s (very tasty) entree.
Many thanks to the kind staff and talented kitchen crew for a great lunch! We’ll be stopping in again, we promise!
P.S. Our MacBookPro (5 years old now) suffered a busted GPU and is out for repairs, so this is our first blog post edited entirely on our iPad2. We used the Apple Camera Connector Kit to pull our RAW images straight out of the camera. NikSoftware’s Snapseed app was a great “on the fly” Raw processor for a few color balance tweaks and development. Lastly, our layouts were so simple using Photo Collage HD for iPad. Right now we’re feeling all hip and cool. Happy to finally get some real work done on this modern device. (We hope we got the coding and everything right!)
