Thursday, September 6, 2012Hans was whining about having lobster, so when we saw that JASPER'S had a 1 lb. fresh Maine lobster special for $12.99, he went for it. It's not a fancy place, but it is where the locals eat and it was quite busy. I had the pulled pork sandwich special for $6.99 and it was delicious. Hans enjoyed his lobster, but wished...more
Specializing in SeaFood and we were dumb enough to order Chicken.It was cooked well but left in the grease way to long (or at the wrong temperature). I like crispy chicken tends. These were limp. The rest of the family ordered Italian (spaghetti) and they thought it was okay (not great but okay).The other customers seemed to be really enjoying...more

My wife loves these outlet stores, especially ones which have catalogues which she has already memorized.The L.L. Bean stores are department outlet stores with things for all sexes and ages; things for the patio and the living room; shoes and hats; regular sizes and plus sizes. So that's good..... right?WRONG! that is way too many choices for my...more
The town of Ellsworth has placed live-video cameras along the shore and park areas.
You can readily check out active weather conditions in the area.

The biggest warnings are, if you see an out-of-state license plate on a car, be prepared to make sudden stops! The traffic in Ellsworth is horrible in the summer, due to tourist travel to Mount Desert Island. Tourists have been known to just stop in the middle of the road when they see something they want to look at rather than pulling over to the...more
I read in the local Ellsworth newspaper that you could get live lobsters fresh off the boat in the fishing village of WINTER HARBOR. So the next day when we were heading east, we made a detour off the Route # 1, and took the #186 south. Of course, it was a very foggy day and you couldn't see much. There wasn't much going on as it was not Lobster season. There were a few lobster traps sitting on the docks, but nobody was around.
An interesting fact I found is that The Harbor does not freeze over in winter making it an attractive port for the local fishermen.
$25 for 18-holes, $20 for a cart. You can even rent clubs for $20.
The course (fairway and greens) tend to dry out in the summer and play fast. The roughs are left quite long and can cost you a shot to recover. The holes are fairly short yardage with total being in the mid-5000 range. When it is wet is it very wet; drainage is poor (clay soil) and greens slow to a crawl.
There is an executive course with 9 holes that is quite easy to play and affords some fun for weed-whacking players like me. The trees are short; there are few traps and no water hazards. $20 plus $12 for cart for this short course.
There is a nice dining area with a snackbar for replenshing your energy after a round of golf.
The beverage bar is also available to drown your sorrow over the shots you missed.
Maine fishermen catch between 55 and 60 million pounds of the tasty crustacean every year. The following are some interesting LOBSTER TRIVIA:1) It takes the average lobster from 5 to 7 years to reach legal size. In that time it will shed its shell between 25 and 27 times.2) A female lobster will bear between 6,000 and 100,000 eggs. Fishery...more
