|One of the great view stops along the way from Ellsworth to East Blue Hill.
I think this scene is near Contention Cove on Maine Highway 172
|Lobster traps stacked on shore at Morgan Bay
|Miss Maddie III coming to pick us up at the dock.
|Capt. Errol, at the helm of Miss Maddie III.
He continues patiently answering my many questions.
|Preparing the herring bait bags.
Maddie on the left, Allison on the right.
|Introduction to the tools of the trade.
This one bands the lobstah claws.
|This is the tool used for measuring the lobstah
|Bringing up the lobstah traps. Allison on the left, Maddie on the right.
This one is called "the school bus" because it's real big and yellow.
|My first attempt at "banding" the claws.
Maddie takes it from here.
|Hoisting up another large trap.
|Lobstah that are too small go back into the water. So do those that are too large, like this guy.
Take a look at that claw behind Errol's left arm!
|This "soon to be" momma lobstah has about a zillion black eggs all over her underside.
She goes right back into the water to keep the production line going.
You can see the notch in the second section of her tail.
|Recovery from motion sickness is easy when you sit on the boat's stern and look at the shoreline.
|I hadn't noticed the squatty little lighthouse here at Morgan Bay when we arrived.
But now, McHeard Cove Lighthouse must become part of my photo collection of lighthouses.
|Errol took Miss Maddie III to her mooring and returned in the skiff.
Come the next Saturday, yet another Lobstah Feast was enjoyed and I had a whole new appreciation for my meal.
