The Giant Lobster at Shediac, NB - the Lobster Capital of the World.
The weekend we went to Hopewell Rocks we stayed overnight in Moncton and went to church in the morning and in the afternoon went to Cap Brule on the Northumberland Strait coast near Shediac. We visited my cousin at her cottage there and went to a late lunch at the wharf in Cap Pele. Before we went though, I wanted to go down to the beach and walk on the sand and along the water's edge. It was so beautiful - sunny and hot with a lovely breeze.
Murray took this pic of me on the beach.
Cap Brule. Look at that sand and sky.
Cap Bimet is the next community along this coast then Cap Pele.
I wonder where the rest of this lobster was.
I could have just sat there on the sand and watched the boats and waves for a while. So peaceful.
We drove down the coast a bit to Cap Pele. This is at the wharf with all the lobster boats lined up.
I had a lobster roll but as you can see the lobster was pretty skimpy!! Very disappointing. I haven't had a good lobster roll yet this summer. You'd think at the wharf where they bring the lobster in on their boats they'd give one a bit more and fill the roll wouldn't you? Oh well. It was fresh and there were big chunks. The fries were good. :)
And this is Murray's fish and chip order. Look at all that fish!!
He sure enjoyed it too.
We had a wonderful weekend getaway. This coming weekend is the Labour Day holiday on Monday. We don't have plans yet but may take a day trip on Saturday. The weather is looking beautiful right through the weekend although we may get thunder showers later today. There is a touch of fall in the air in the mornings and evenings but the days warm up nicely with the sun.
Thanks for visiting. Have a great day!
