Cousins Maine Lobster Truck

During the summer of 2020, I dined on clam chowder and lobster roll every other week.

Many summers ago, a former employer offered something they Called summer hours. Staff could work an extra hour each day from Monday to Thursday and leave work early on Fridays. I took advantage of this to have lunch with my kids. Summer hours coincided with the summer lunch at specials at One 53 in Rocky Hill. They offered a beer and lobster roll. My kids loved it because they were allowed to order anything from the menu. If they didn’t like what they ordered, they could order something else.

I “discovered” the Cousins Maine Lobster truck a few years ago. One 53 no longer offered lobster rolls on the menu. I was on a hunt for any place local serving lobster rolls. My Google search led me to Cousins Maine Lobster truck. The truck moves between a few towns, including Pennington, Hillsborough, Lawrenceville, and Somerset. If I ordered via the app, my food would be ready by the twenty-minute drive to any of those locations.

This frame from a roll of Eastman Kodak Double-X 5222 400 was taken (Minolta XD-11 and MD ROKKOR-X 45mm F2) during the one time that the Cousins Maine Lobster truck visited Flounder Brewing. I hope they return for the summer.

Duke Farms

In late January, I decided to get out to Duke Farms for some photography. It’s been a few years since my last visit. I needed to get outside. I tossed my Fuji X-T3 and Minolta XD-11 into my peak design camera bag and grabbed my tripod. there is a roll of Eastman Kodak Double-X 5222 400 in the XD-11 and I wanted to expose a few frames.

It was cold. When I stepped out of the car. I was sure I would be ok. I stopped at the waterfall near the north entrance. The water was frozen. I continued toward the abandoned 1917 Conservatory. I managed to expose just a few more frames before biting cold became unbearable. My fingers felt number.

I called it quits and turned to walk back to the car.
