The cooler weather got even better when light showers floated in this morning. It's been years since I (Tammy) was able to sleep with the window open, and it was peaceful and meditative. A great way to start the day.

For dinner we went to Young's Lobster Pound in Belfast because they're supposed to have the Best Lobster Roll in the county. While I do not care for lobster, I fell in love with the roll in Boston a few years ago. It's like chicken salad only with lobster (the real deal is simply chunk lobster with a bit of mayo to hold it together) and a grilled New England hotdog roll. I don't know why it's different from steamed lobster, but it is.

Young's must have paid off someone at the magazine. It was huge chunks of lobster, a dab of mayo, two pieces of lettuce, on - worst of all - a hamburger bun. That's right. A hamburger bun. Everyone went because of me, and I really felt bad about it, but I just couldn't eat it. As a Texas gal, I have no problem with bottom feeders. I eat fried catfish for heaven's sake. But apparently, I am extremely particular about my lobster. Well, I was. (Tammy wasn't the only one not impressed. A "real" Maine lobster roll is three simple ingredients. Well, four if you consider the butter for grilling the roll. One need not mess with perfection.) I think I'm over the lobster roll. Kind of like Malibu Rum. One big hurrah and you just can't handle it again.

But the salted caramel ice cream for dessert down the street was really good! (Amen to that. The Cold Spot in town also had a pretty amazing and super creamy chocolate that was much more of a rich cocoa based flavor than a sweet chocolate.)
