This is the good stuff.
Every time we're home (rain or shine) we book it to Roy Moore's on Bearskin Neck in Rockport, Mass. You eat your lobster (or other fresh sea food) "in the rough" on a small back deck that's perched over an inlet in the harbor. You sit on converted crates while seagulls squawk below for scraps. Moore boils the lobsters as you order in the sea water from which they came, making them soft, salty and delicious. West Coast rock lobsters just don't compare. At $15 for a pound and a half it's a good deal too. Tommie also enjoys a small basket of smoked salmon for $3.
Maya made out like a bandit. It was one of the first beautiful warm days New Englanders have seen in months and they were in an especially good mood. One of the workers asked if Maya wanted a treat and proceeded to give her a chunk of smoked salmon which she gobbled up happily. She then batted her puppy dog eyes at strangers on the deck compelling them to share pieces of their lobster with her.We could all get used to this.
