She went to Oo-ick's for a lobstah roll.
Mom laughs when the fancy cooking shows try to "gussy up" a lobster roll. Mom says a lobster roll should have these, and only these ingredients: lobster, mayo (not much!), salt and pepper and some chopped celery. This should be served on a roll that has been lightly grilled with butter. The lobster roll is pretty terrific by itself if the lobster is very fresh and perfectly cooked, but even better if you are sitting at a table overlooking the water on a sparkling blue day.
Mom says you can't be that close to the ocean and not dunk your toesies in it, so that's what she did next.
The ocean water is COLD! Mom says in the summer it is about 58F (14.4C), and she calls it "invigorating." (What-ever. It's WATER, and water is WET, so I am NOT interested. Come to think of it, I don't like fish either.)
A nice drive along the coast is always in order. Mom says the smell of the ocean is just wonderful. The drive should end with ice cream, and this one did too.
The Beach Plum and had a hard time choosing from the 78 flavors of ice cream. Finally she selected Coffee Almond Caramel. Then she sat on the seawall as the sun set behind her, watching the waves crash gently on the beach.
Mom says very soon she will be doing the same thing, eating ice cream on a beach at sunset, but the sunset will be in front of her. I do not understand how that can happen. I know she can make magic but I am not quite sure she has a magic wand big enough to make the sun change course.
Then again, she's Mom, and there's no telling what will happen.
