Today I accompanied my family on some errands, the most notable being getting a new computer for my sister before school starts. There is no better way to end a morning of errands than having a meal together at a place we used to frequent during the summer many years ago.
We first started going to Brown’s Seabrook Lobster Pound in Seabrook, NH probably because of it’s name, but also because of its simple yet delicious seafood. My family stopped here many years ago and made many return visits during my childhood. We used to go when my cousins visited from Honduras during the summer and order fresh seafood and then run across the street to eat ice cream when we were done. These were fun memories and times everyone enjoyed.
The restaurant was only 30 minutes from the mall we were at, so we decided to make the trip. At times the traffic was bad, with vacationers heading north to enjoy the beaches of New Hampshire and Maine. We remained resolute and made it to the restaurant stomachs yearning.
Orders were placed at the counter. My sister and father ordered lobster, fresh out of the in-house lobster tanks.
My mother and I ordered lobster bisque. She also had a lobster roll and I had a clam roll. Everything was well worth the wait and just as good as memory indicated it would be.
The simple food and establishment brought back memories of my childhood, enjoying hot summer days eating and spending time with family. I’m glad we made the trek north together as summer comes to an end and hope we can enjoy some more outings together soon.
