"This piece was a result of a late Summer vacation Debbie forced me to go on. Being a reluctant traveler I whined about the trip for months. We went in part to visit my only Nephew Drake Smith and he’s wife Olivia in Connecticut, who had recently had a baby boy Wesley. The first part of the trip was driving up into Maine, then working our way back to Charlestown, RI where Olivia’s family had a beach home in Rhode Island. We were invited to join the Trueb Family for Labor Day, which included an authentic New England Lobster Bake with their entire beach community. 265 Maine Lobster paid the ultimate sacrifice for our pleasure." - Dirk A.
