Today we might go ashore whilst the captain goes for lobsters. Otherwise it's more of the same, good conversation, great food, and music.

Maine Music Cruise, continued - evening
An Island Somewhere in Penobscot Bay
ME 04841
800-648-4544 [map]

Today is the day we all go ashore for a traditional lobster bake. There will be experienced lobster-eaters on hand to show how to get into these things. There will also be some vegetables also baked (steamed, actually) in the seaweed, the captain's (in)famous camp coffee, wine, and dessert.  We get to practice our rowing songs as we go from ship to shore.

Maine Music Cruise, concluded - Morning
11 Front Street
Rockland, ME 04841
800-648-4544 [map]

This is our last morning aboard. Generally we anchor near Rockland Harbor the night before. We won't get any breakfast today - don't worry. It's because we'll be having brunch instead. If there were lobsters left from the island adventure we might get lobster quiche. We'll have a few more songs as we head to the dock, then it's up the gangway and back to life on shore - until the next time.
