Lobster Tales

Here are a couple pictures from our Boston trip. One of the most memorable evenings was the clambake and lobster dinner that we were served in Plymouth. Neither of us have had much experience with eating sea food, so eating whole lobsters with quite an experience! We both felt a little queasy by the time we were done, but it was still fun! I liked the lobster meat, but I doubt it will be something I'll crave in the future. Justin, on the other hand, shudders every time I bring up the mention of lobster. He was really grossed out. =)

Eating lobsters is really messy, and requires bibs, nutcrackers, and picks. And of course clean-up towels afterward! Personally I thought it was a lot of work and mess for a little bit of meat.

Our trip was a whirlwind... lots of fun, but quite exhausting. I got to see downtown Plymouth and a lot of the Pilgrim related history there, and we got to see downtown Boston together. We toured Paul Revere's home, several of the old Puritan and English churches, and the 1st State building. The museum displays in these old buildings were really well done...we got to see actual tea from the Boston Tea Party. It had been shaken out of the boots of one of the "Indians" and saved and passed on through the generations. It was pretty neat to see the actual places and things from when this country began so many years ago.
