Light plays and lobsters

Perhaps I am the last to notice - on dusk the sky becomes dark and the water becomes light - almost a reverse of a daylight photograph. Thank you Tom. This is the water off  Bailey Island, off or perhaps more accurately out from the coast of Maine and nearly two hours' drive from Madbury where our friends Susan and Tom live. We had a memorable night at the Cooks Lobster House and arrived back in Madbury NH around midnight.  Apart from the lobster, we were treated to a huge bowl of clams which were dipped into warm water in an attempt to rinse off the last of the sand / grit then dipped into a pot of melted butter before consumption. It took me a while to get the hang of it  and more than one clam got lost or tossed in the process. Thank you Susan and Tom for a night that will never be forgotten.
