Nothing to see here, just a sunbathing seal floating by.

.

We had lunch at the Muddy Rudder last week..

.

.

Why the name?

Legend has it that many years ago the tugboat Portland slowly wound its way up the nearby Cousins River. Its destination was Yarmouth, and its purpose was to provide a place for good food, drink, and hospitality. A harsh nor’easter besieged the boat at its mooring and strong winds grounded and overturned her. The restaurant is built on that site.

But wait…. as we were sipping our adult beverages something was spotted outside.

Do you see it?

My iPhone camera doesn’t do him justice, but that’s one very chill seal slowly floating by on a chunk of rapidly melting ice.

.

.

Wedge salad and clam chowder later…

.

.

He was still floating. Though he’d flipped over on his stomach and turned to face foward.

.

.

Fried scallops and a stuffed haddock with sherry lobster cream sauce later? He was gone, and we were full. Just another average day on the Maine coast….

  1. Is that (GAG!) kale next to those scallops? They (The scallops) looked like hushpuppies at first glance, which still makes them fabulous. What’s your husband having? It looks pretty good.
