Instead of talking about the complete insanity that was our trip home… stranded by American Airlines for 21 hours in NYC, and delayed flights from NYC and DC this afternoon, I’d like to write about something more, um, appetizing.
I would have to be completely out of my mind (or a total cheapskate) to not get lobster while in Nova Scotia, especially considering it’s during the two month fishing season. Since I am neither of the aforementioned things, I throughly enjoyed a fresh steamed local lobster at Le Gabriel in Cheticamp during our visit.
(like my bib?)
I put my biology degree to the test and managed to retrieve every last bit of meat from this delicious 1.5 lb creature. Yum. I should also mention that this followed a heaping bowl of freshly steamed mussels. Double yum (and completely stuffed).
An important footnote to this post is the fact that Eric actually ordered something fishy in a restaurant for the first time ever. His entree of choice was two mashed potato and haddock fish cakes, which he seemed to enjoy very much.
