Murdo Girl…A lobster lesson

We had a busy day yesterday, and I was so full and so tired after enjoying a wonderful trout dinner at the Muddy Rudder, I chose bed over blog. 

We were really excited to get to spend time with our friends, Pat and Jerry Davis’ daughter, Amy Rorer, her husband, Keith, and almost 13 year old son, Nate.

Kip had thought about it all day and decided he was going to tackle a WHOLE Maine lobster. He almost chickened out, but the server told him they didn’t have four pound lobster tails.

Amy took some priceless pictures. Kip and I were both grateful that Keith was sitting close enough to show him how to dismantle his dinner. He loved every morsel of meat. He even went whole hog and upgraded his potatoes. (On the way back to the RV we stopped at a gas station to air up a jeep tire and I went inside and got him an apple turnover for dessert.)

The process…

(The first challenge was to get the durnned bib on.)

(Keith quickly showed Kip how the cow ate the cabbage…an old Wyoming expression.)

My trout was delicious and we really enjoyed the time we had with this fun family!


Earlier in the day we drove to Cape Elizabeth and Two Lights State Park. The day was sunny and crisp, but there was no wind and it felt good to walk along the trails. Everywhere we go, the puppydogs get lots of attention, especially Cyndie.

Old army bunker on the beach…

The dogs enjoyed the 10,000 sq ft dog park at the KOA

Today, we’re off to Boston! Anybody have any relatives there?

    Magnificent pictures as usual. What a trip you’re having! When you get to Boston, drive down to the harbor and see if they got all the tea cleaned up.

      You make me laugh 07. I spent an hour walking along that harbor on my way to see the USS Constitution. I didn’t notice any residual tea. I think I read the environment pilgrims made them clean it up.

    Such a fun experience. Glad that you can get out and exercise daily. The pictures of Kip eating lobster were hilarious. I have never been to Boston but Ken said it’s fantastic with tons of history.

      We are taking the train to Boston Common in the morning and will tour the Freedom Trail. The weather is supposed to be good! Yeah, we are eating too well and too much, but I think we’re holding our own because of all the activity!
