Let's Eat On Monhegan Island

Time to see the seafood on Monhegan and the place has a couple of good spots, whether you're eating out or in.

First stop, a marooned food truck called Hot Fat. Mmmm, let the name attract, not repel you. Bring it.

Beer and a simple menu, easy options.

Ordering and waiting.

Fish sandwich, fish tacos and some chicken for the land lubber, all good. Next stop: buying fish to take home. The ladies line up.

The men show their catch.

The Mighty Lobster At The Monhegan Quadricentennial Parade

James went to Monhegan to visit a friend and his family and to check out the big parade.  It turns out, the family brought their parade game and aced the thing with a champion lobster float/interactive/free-for-all exhibition.

The Big Red One. Wait'll you see it move.

Portrait of a lobster holder.

The details were superb, right down to the rubber bands around the claws. Who was impressed? How about the honorable Maine Senator, Susan Collins.

Line up, get that lobster moving! (All those multicolored strips are water)

And move it did, beyond a regular march into some sort of jiggling dance mayhem. Rock lobster, rock!

Post parade family photo. Fun!
