Here is a lobster just coming out of the pot!
This is a dear sweet lady named Esther who has been a SKP for years!! You can see she is all decked out in her lobster apron ready to chow down. 70 people in that room ate lobster in almost total silence!!! It was a hoot to hear how quiet they got considering how noisy they had been at other times!
The folks were simply so welcoming and kind here in Maine. All were "lobster experts" and we didn't have a clue as to what to do. So they made sure we had a trial lobster run the day before at Bar Harbor and then when it came time to eat..they made sure we had "official" lobster plates and the crackers to crack the hard shell lobster open. We ate inside the claw and even squoze the meat from the legs! But Steve and I did not eat the "tamale" inside which is the guts of the lobster! Yuck!
Here is someone's place all set. As you can see by the large channel locks there, they really get into their lobster!!! The big silver pan is for all the "trash" the lobster shells.
