A Peaks Islander's 1st Lobster






Last week, Jill and I attended a very large, fun filled island party extravaganza. A simple gathering of 200 close friends----and, trust me, they really were. Nothing like fully celebrating the completion of large renovation projects on two houses complete with extensive landscaping as a prime reason to throw a party. It was indeed a party complete with catered lobster dining, a full band, numerous adult beverages and large tents everywhere. A wonderful way to say an island thank you to the many many individuals connected with a year long effort. All I could think of was clicking my sandals twice and no longer being on Peaks Island but rather Nantucket or Marthas Vinyard.

The highlight for me though was watching a rite of passage occur. Daisy is a wonderful young lady who will be leaving the island this Fall to continue her education in Portland at a Middle School. It was the perfect time for her to learn the secrets of eating a Maine lobster. It was a delight watching her face change as she considered the task ahead, pondered the eternal question of "do I really want to do this", accept the inevitable that yes, today was the day for this large leap of faith and finally, the face of enjoyment. Wonderful facial changes; enjoy every shot of a delightful individual. Good luck Daisy and thanks for the pictures.
