Ok. Well ended up at Waterbury, Vermont for a stop. Had to stop by where Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream was invented and still manufactured. Grabbed a shot of a couple of their employees in the background...



And I thought the flavor graveyard was pretty cool...



Then off to see the oldest Vermont family maple syrup place was. Pretty incredible maple syrup. Takes 40 gallons of maple sap to make one gallon of maple syrup!! Pretty interesting how they hook up the trees to get the sap down to the cookery..



And the landscape here.. well hard to capture in photos..





The off to Bar Harbor, Maine. Here we hooked with one of Catherine's best friends Julie. Went through a lobster hatchery. Very interesting. In the photo below, shows the baby lobster. They eat each other so they put them into "baby lobster condos" and larger tanks to keep them from gobbling themselves up..



So the trivia question is.. "Where do you put a 3.5 pound Main Lobster??



In my stomach for safe keeping... Along with some chardonnay.... Just look at the size of its claws compared to my hands! This was a big and delicious one!! Can't wait til dinner....



And for dessert... of course...






And yes... It is real lobster... And taste like it. Anyone want me to send some back to you??



Here a couple of days, then off to Boston. Talk then!!!

Very Nice!
Steve,

The pictures of the trees remind me of my home in Ohio. We have a routed drive for fall color in my county and I took it for granted when I lived there. Now you miss it. I don't like lobster! So, I guess I'll have to imagine a 3lb filet. Between ice cream and lobster, you're going to have to go on a diet before the holidays! AHH, the heck with it! Just enjoy!!! Please keep the pictures coming! Going to start playing in a weekly Monday Night Football tourny at Pechanga every Monday with Ryan and two of his friends starting next week. It's a $2K guarantee with hourly give aways. They have a monthly WSOP tourny for $225 on the last Saturday of every month as well. I'm going to play in this months event. I'll keep you posted!

Stay Safe!!
Jeff & Mary

Lobster!
Yum - I spent many of my summers with my mom travelling from Bangor to Bar Harbor. We probably stopped by that same lobster stand. Big fire, Brick BBQ, pot of boiling water - pick your lobster. Aaaahhh, The scenery is fantastic.
Catherine - have you lost weight??
