Boston Duck Tour Picture - Steering Duck in Boston's Charles River
For our four-year-old daughter, the highlight of the Duck Tour came when our guide, Duck Pin, invited her to steer Symphony Hal on the Charles River. A Gloucester native, Duck Pin said, 'I was born with saltwater in my veins.'. Page 11.

Duck in the Charles River - Boston Duck Tours Photo
Duck Pin kept up the history lesson and monologue while we were afloat, which was surprising considering my daughter is not an experienced driver! We learned that there's no such fish as scrod. Scrod is an acronym for 'select catch received on the dock.'. Page 12.

New England Holocaust Memorial Photo - Holocaust Memorial in Boston
Our Duck Tour also took us past the glass towers of the New England Holocaust Memorial, which was dedicated in 1995. The symbolism of the memorial is better appreciated up close, but the 54-foot towers were still a moving scene. Page 6.

Old South Meeting House - Photo of Old South Meeting House from Boston Duck Tour

Mt Washington Auto Road - Accident Photo
Driving the Mt. Washington Auto Road is not for the faint-hearted. The road is steep, narrow, winding. Your knuckles will be white. Yet, Dispatcher Bouton of the New Hampshire State Police says accidents, like the one we observed, are 'not common at all.'. Page 2.

Mount Washington Summit View - Mt Washington Auto Road
Once you've reached the 6,288-foot summit of Mount Washington, you'll appreciate the reason why thousands make the heart-thumping drive up the Mt. Washington Auto Road each year. Page 4.

Mt Washington Auto Road - Road to the Sky
As you ascend the eight-mile Mt. Washington Auto Road to the summit of New England's highest peak, the views will quite simply snatch your breath away.

Photo of Car on top of Mount Washington New Hampshire
After witnessing another traveler's mishap on the mountain, the remainder of our ascent was even more nerve-wracking. But, my trusty Saturn got us safely to the top. Before your visit, review the vehicle requirements and limits at the Auto Road Web site. Page 3.

Traffic on Mt Washington Auto Road - Photo
As it turned out, a tow truck had finally made the climb to assist the disabled vehicle we'd seen on the drive up the Mt. Washington Auto Road, and we sat for quite some time waiting for the accident to be cleared. Tough to complain with a view like this! Page 7.

Mt Washington Auto Road Picture - Descending Mount Washington NH
Driving up Mt. Washington, your biggest fear will be sticking to the road and not plummeting over a sheer cliff. When it's time to make your descent, you'll be saying silent prayers on behalf of your brakes. Reconsider the trek if your car's not tip-top. Page 5.

Lobster Boat Tour is Fun for Kids in Maine - Photo
Lobster boat tour is fun for kids in Maine. My daughter's favorite part of our tour was when Captain Steve Hale invited her to drive the lobster boat. She took her role as lobster boat captain very seriously. Page 15.

Catch of the Day Restaurant in Rockland Maine Cooks Fresh Lobsters Caught Aboard the Captain Jack Lobster Boat Adventure
Of course, the best part of our tour was being able to purchase the lobsters we caught. Steve Hale's daughter owns Catch of the Day in Rockland, Maine, where our lobsters were cooked to perfection. You can also arrange to eat lobster on the lobster boat. Page 17.

Maine Lobster Boat Tours - See How Maine Lobstermen Do Their Jobs
Steve Hale's idea: take Maine travelers on lobster boat tours and provide them with a unique opportunity to learn how lobstermen do their jobs. Here, he brings up the first trap we'll check for Maine's prized catch. Page 5.

Captain Jack Lobster Boat Adventure Photo Tour Rockland Maine - A Crab in a Lobster Trap
What's this? Lobster traps are intricate contraptions, but other sea creatures do manage to find their way in. Crabs like this one usually find a way out on their own. There's no market for Maine crabs, so Hale tosses them back or eats them for dinner. Page 10.

Lobster Boat Tours in Maine - Captain Jack Lobster Boat is Named for a Little Lobsterman
For Steve Hale, the best thing about offering lobster boat tours is that he can bring his grandson along. The lobster boat is named after Jack, who is so comfortable on board he can curl up and nap. He's been his grandfather's sidekick since he was three. Page 11.

Maine Lobster Boat Tour - Finding the Right Buoy
Captain Steve Hale's buoys are white with a horizontal black stripe. His daughter's, he explains, are white with vertical black stripes. 'We can fish 800 [traps] by law,' Hale says. 'I have 300 in the water; that's all I can tend.'. Page 3.

Maine Lobster Boat Tour - Checking for Lobster Eggs
In our second trap, we find two nice-sized lobsters that weigh between 2 and 2-1/4 pounds. In addition to measuring each lobster, a Maine lobsterman must check the underside of each lobster for eggs. Egg-laying females are also set free. Page 7.

Maine Lobsterman Steve Hale Hauls a Lobster Trap - Photo
Hauling lobster traps is not easy work. When Steve Hale fell off a wharf and broke his back in 1999, the Maine lobsterman feared he'd never fish again. While he recuperated, he cared for his newborn grandson, Jack, and when Jack was 3, Steve had an idea. Page 4.

Lobster Boat Photo Tour - Captain Jack Can Apply for a Student Lobster Fishing License
My almost-4-year-old was thrilled, but being at the helm of a lobster boat is no big deal for Jack, who was 7 at the time of our trip. When he turns 8, he'll be eligible to apply for his own student lobster fishing license. Page 16.

Learn About Lobsters on a Maine Lobster Boat Tour - Why Aren't Lobsters Red When They're Trapped?
Captain Hale enjoys answering his passengers' lobster questions. Even Mainers learn something. The most common query: Why aren't the lobsters in your traps red? The answer: the red pigment in a lobster's shell only emerges when it's cooked. Page 12.

How to Tell a Male Lobster from a Female Lobster - Photo
How do you tell a male lobster from a female lobster? Captain Hale shows us that the first pair of pleopods or swimmerets on a male lobster are hard, whereas on a female lobster, they are soft and feathery. Page 8.

Maine Lobster Size Regulations - Measuring a Lobster on Captain Jack Lobster Boat Adventure Rockland Maine
We've got one! Captain Hale measures the lobster from its eye socket to the end of its carapace. 'Anything over 5 inches we keep and anything under 3-1/4 inches goes back,' he explains. This little lobster falls just shy of regulation size required under Maine law. Page 6.

Photo Still Life with Lobster Bait - Herring are Used by Maine Lobstermen as Bait
We learn plenty about the tools of the lobsterman's trade on our lobster boat tour. For example, the bait used to lure lobsters is herring. Many canneries once operated in Rockland, Maine, but Hale says Americans have lost their taste for canned fish. Page 13.

Photo of a Maine Lobsterman Baiting His Trap with Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse in Background
Photo of a Maine lobsterman baiting his trap with Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse in background. Maine lobstermen have a stinky but scenic job. Captain Hale ties up a new bag of bait for his lobster trap as we sail past the Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse. Page 14.

Maine Lobster Boat Tour Photo - Captain Hale Slips Rubber Bands Over a Lobster's Claws
Once Captain Hale determines a lobster is a keeper, he uses a tool to slip thick rubber bands over the lobster's claws and places it in the cooler. In 2006 when we took our lobster boat tour, Maine lobstermen were getting $4.10 per pound for lobster. Page 9.

Captain Jack Lobster Boat Adventure Rockland Maine
From May through October, Captain Steve Hale offers Lobster Boat Adventures aboard the Captain Jack, a traditional Downeast lobster boat.

Lobster Buoy - Each Maine Lobsterman Paints His Buoys with a Unique Color Scheme and Design
One of the first things we learn is that each Maine lobsterman paints his buoys with a unique color scheme and design. There are 30-35 lobstermen who fish out of Rockland, so it is important for each to be able to identify his traps. Page 2.
