miscellaneous monday

Last weekend I was off to Massachusetts to spend the weekend with friends.  After a long delay at the airport here in NYC and a short flight to Boston the weekend got underway ... Saturday we drove into Boston and hopped the high speed ferry to Provincetown, a 90 minute trip.  Midway through the trip I succumbed (along with many others) to a bad bout of sea sickness.  I recovered. I will spare you the gory details as well as some of the nicer ones and say a nap can cure a lot of things.  I also regained my land legs and my appetite.  Did some retail therapy and then we drove back to Boston (a wonderful woman drove 2.5 hrs to come get us and take us back... I love you Joanne) after dinner at the Lobster Pot.

Before you can have lobsta, you gotta have some traps and they need to be marked with buoys like these

and 
hope those lobstas 
get made into 
this

wanna see it 
close up?

it was delicious

  1. I truly love food photos.
    And these are fantastic.
    Even though I am not a fan
    of lobster.

  2. Sorry about your ordeal on the ferry. Don't wish that on anybody. Anyways, the lobsta roll would cheer anyone up. It kind of reminds me of the lobster sandwiches from San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf. Now I want one...

  3. Seasickness is no fun but I'd definitely suffer in exchange for one of those lobster rolls - yum yum yum!

  6. We used to go out to P-Town a lot when I lived in Boston. Loved the off-season when things were quiet as much as the summers.

  8. Yum and yum. Your photos are beautiful; the colors on the first photo, and the colors and the cybertastes on the others. I haven't been in a small boat for a long time, but the last time I was in one, I did feel a bit woozy.

  10. that lobsta roll looks delicious! Wish I could eat me some...but even if I wasn't allergic, I usually stayed away. Maybe it was a subconscious thing...lovely photos!

  11. That looks just heavenly! There is a great book that I read recently called the secret life of lobsters. Apparently part of the lobster mating ritual is to pee on each others faces. Female lobster also suffer from PMS... pre molting syndrome;)

  15. Travel sickness is the pits. :(

    I've never had lobster. I keep promising myself I'll try it one of these days. :)

  16. The lobster dishes look delicious. I also like the shots of the pots.

    I'm sorry you got sick. One of my sisters lives in Nantucket and when I've visited her I've always had a connecting flight from Boston. My other sister who lives in Manhattan has taken the ferry before when she visited our sister, and I remember one time that wasn't pleasant. I realize it's not the same place but this post made me think of that.

  17. Mmmmmmmmmm. Lobster rolls.

    (Better to have 'em AFTER you're seasick, of course.)

  18. Oh, that sandwich looks soooo good. Glad you recovered and thus were able to enjoy it!

  19. I love the bouys pic. The colours are fab!

    And of course - the lobsta. Just perfect! Had some fresh ones the other day. Flown from the east coast all the way to arid Alberta - their pincers still clacking!

  21. I am enjoying the buoy pictures, all the shapes and colors, and the little painted sign behind them.
    Decadent food pics!
    Thank JoAnne for being such a dear and driving to get you! That was a true act of kindness.
    Retail therapy always helps!
    My condolences on the passing of your friend.

  22. I really like that artwork behind the buouys. A neat place, Provincetown. Did you make it to the top of the Pilgrim Tower?

    The seafood--is putting to shame my cheese sandwich!

  23. Those buoys really buoyed me up, lol. Great shots. Ya gotta love lobsta...

  24. Did you catch the lobster? Is there a limit that you are allowed to catch?

  25. Sorry about the sea sickness, but it's good to see that it didn't ruin the day. BTW, that sandwich looks delish!

  26. Oh, how I love lobster. But after having it in the northeast, seems a crime to have it here in Texas. I always wait for a trip back East to gorge. Hmmmm. Haven't had one of those trips in a while.

  27. That makes me HUNGRY!
    And, yes, a nap helps ALOT, but just in case you need a quick fix~so does ice cream! Really...it helped me. Go figure! LOL!!

  28. Beautiful! Now I'm starving...:/

    Sea sickness has kept me off of the water many a time. Bummer.

  29. I have been seasick once in my life and that was one time too many! Glad you had a great time other than that. Now I wants some lobsta!

  30. Been through the seasick thing myself. Sorry you had to endure that, and I'm glad you had a friend to come get you. On the plus side though: lobsta. That makes up for a lot.
