The Little RV Visits a Lobster Pound

Oh Yeah!
What is a Lobster Pound you ask? Around the area we are visiting, Bar Harbor, Maine, it seems they call a restaurant where you can choose from a large batch of live lobster and they will cook the lobster for you or you can take them live. The term Lobster Pound is taken from the lobster industry history. If you're interested in learning more click this link. Lobster Pound   

We visited the Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound. 

It was hopping and parking was hard to come by. The boiling pots are lined up just outside the front door.
Inside you select your lobster(s) from the giant, green lobster holder. They weigh them and give you an order sheet. They place the lobsters in a net with a number on it.  
You pay and wait while they take your lobsters out and drop them in one of the pots.   

When they are cooked they pull the net and call your number. You can take them to go or eat there. 

We took ours home and they were oh so good.
