I’m Not Sharing!

lobsterOne of our favorite summer outings is boating to a nearby spot for lunch. It could be Castine or Belfast or Tenant’s Harbor where eating on a waterfront deck is one of life’s little pleasures.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANo matter where we go, the joy of sitting under a summer sun and savoring simple but tasty local seafood offerings is a special treat.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANow eating outside is not without its challenges as we are reminded.

gullAgressive gulls trying to snag a morsel keep a watchful eye on every table.  Leaving anything unguarded for even the second it takes to get extra napkins can be very costly!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASometimes the gulls are challenged by a warrior with a powerful water gun, and watching the battle between the two can be very entertaining. Want to make any bets about which comes out the winner?

fried clamsTry as it might to get a bite, I’ll not be sharing even the tiniest morsel of my fried clams with any feathered nuisance.  On a lucky day, the gull might find a crumb left on the table and it’ll have to be satisfied with that!

i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
