People are so fixated on comparing the new U.S. Space Force seal to Star Trek that they’ve missed the new USSF motto:

“Klaatu Barada Nikto”

Fall Foliage Cruise — Lunch at Paddy’s Irish Pub & Restaurant, Bar Harbor

Where lobster rolls come from

It was time for lunch, so I took Ursula over to Paddy’s Irish Pub & Restaurant (click here for menu)for the best lobster roll we experienced over the course of this entire cruise. Yes, it was a bit pricey at about $25, but the amount of lobster meat piled onto the roll made it a bargain.

A good Irish pub has good Irish beers, and Paddy’s had my favorite. I’m not talking Guinness here, but rather Smithwick’s (pronounced Smitt-icks) Irish red ale:

My favorite Irish brew — Smithwick’s Irish Red Ale

Inside, Paddy’s has one main bar area and two restaurant areas:

So, let’s take a look at one of those delectable lobster rolls:

No pictured, because it disappeared too quickly, is a must-try dessert — Paddy’s wild Maine blueberry pie, a smallish tart featuring a flaky crust, a nicely tart lemon curd, and Maine blueberries, served with a side of vanilla ice cream.
