What’s on your plate? Lobstah!

Our Au Pair, who has been with us for the past year, just left to go back home to the Czech Republic.

  Before she left we asked her if there was anything she wanted to do or eat or see one last time before leaving the USA – and she requested one more lobster dinner!

We set the table, using newspaper for the mess.

Lots of melted butter.


Veggies, potatoes and local steamers on the side.

Pick your lobster…

Dig in!

This meal tiggers such nostalgia for me, sparking memories of summer, childhood, family…it was the perfect way to celebrate her year with us.

How do you do lobster? Does it trigger the same nostalgia? Cheers!

Long weekend wanderings

An extra long weekend can be so restorative – it was just what we needed. 

Add in the ocean, friends, and family and you’ve got the icing on the cake. 

We spent mornings exploring low tide wildlife.

Afternoons walking, reading, and relaxing.

And evenings filled with good food and drink…


…and an ice cream cone or two.


It finally feels like summer. How did you spend Memorial Day?
