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.

On Wednesday we’ll take in lunch and the best lobster roll of our entire trip. Until then, let’s look at what awaits near the marina:
