Maine Love


With so many reasons to love Maine, it’s hard to know where to begin. Since most people seem to think lobster and Maine go together let’s begin there.

No matter whether it’s steamed, grilled or used as an ingredient in a variety of dishes, lobster is a special treat of which I never tire.

I’m lucky to know a lobster guy who works out of Rockport Harbor. He keeps me supplied with lobster as I need them. Believe me, you can’t beat having lobster fresh out of the water.

Speaking of lobster, one of my favorite things is to boat to a beautiful cove or harbor for a tasty lobster roll picnic aboard.

Happiness for me in Maine is being on the water. I love the rugged coastline and the sound of the sea crashing against the rocks.

There are hundreds of islands off the Maine coast, and I never tire of going ashore to do a little exploring. Sometimes I find raspberries or blueberries there or stumble onto what I call mussel heaven where I collect as many as my pockets will hold. Knowing that I harvested them myself makes steamed mussels taste extra good!

I love spending the night on the boat and sitting on the deck beneath a full moon thanking my lucky stars to be in such a place.

How can I not mention Maine’s little wild blueberries that burst with flavor? They won’t be ready to pick until August, but in the meantime the freezer is full so there will be no shortage of muffins, pancakes or cobblers.

It is said that in Maine life is the way life it is supposed to be, and I couldn’t agree more. Sitting on the porch and looking out over the harbor is confirmation.

i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
