I tested a lot of theories this summer. The first being; how much lobster is TOO much lobster for a person to consume in a week. The results of my analysis were simple. It’s clear I do not seem to have a shellfish allergy, but when consumed in excessive amounts, lobster begins to seep from ones pours, creating an interesting perfume that lets just say is very different from my usual Le Labo Oud. Despite a short moment contemplating my potential issues with overindulgence, I had a wonderfully calm summer on the water in Mass/Maine with my love, good friends, and my parents. I’m realizing that my boyfriend Marq and I may have something Ill call, “underwhelmed syndrome". We climbed a mountain, ate at what Portland and Bar Harbor consider the best restaurants, ventured around, finding ourselves constantly underwhelmed by what others have deemed incredible. It’s comical really at this point, that too such assholes can find each other, but we realized in Maine that we may be getting a little out of hand. We swapped out the cheap imitation butter that comes on the side of a boiled lobster dinner for our favorite hand made Amish slab that we carry in our car travel cooler. We then proceeded to melt it in the hot sun on the corner of the table, because we were both to embarrassed to ask them to melt our BYOB. Like jesus, actually who are we. And so the summer ends, a pseudo foodie in training and her chef travel back to NYC. Lollz. In all seriousness we had an amazing time. It was my first time in the state of Maine (believe it or not), and I found it truly beautiful. The farmers market in Portland is a must. We then we drove past Bangor to Swans Island, Near Bar Harbor. I love being off the grid. You take a 20 min ferry to get to the Island, and find yourself in a postcard worthy beach town with now restaurants and one general store. After a night on the island we proceeded to scale Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park. This trip is a New England must do.
Peace, Love & Comedy, Claire
