Day 134

Lobster Roll Tour!

We attempted to retry the same trip that we unsuccessfully embarked upon last month when the Pierson Parents came to visit.

Our mission: Determine the best lobster roll in New England.
GQ magazine ranked Abbott’s Lobster in the Rough as having the #1 lobster roll in New England. Andrew had an amazing lobster roll in Westerly, RI last summer at Bay Street Deli. We had to determine which one was actually better. And let’s be honest, no one is going to complain about taste-testing lobster!!

We first drove to Noank, Connecticut, to try a lobster roll from Abbott’s.
We were all happy and satisfied. Andrew tried to recall the taste of last year’s roll.



Since it was only a 30 minute drive to the other place, Bay Street Deli, we drove around and looked at pretty houses to kill time.



This house was being raised. Crazy.



And we saw lots of unique “driveways.” Our guess is that since many of these towns are seasonal and only occupied for part of the year they don’t have driveways. Not sure why. So it’s pretty funny to see a big fancy house with a car parked in the grass of the front yard!


We went by the lighthouse and the beach. We took lots of pictures.


Andrew attempted to go into the water.


Apparently the water is not warm yet.


But you know what is warm? A lobster roll!
Highlight of the day: Bay Street Deli was open!


Conclusion: Best lobster roll ever.
The bread from Calise Bakery puts it over the top.
If you’re hungering for a lobster this is where it’s at!


On our way out of town, we drove past the coolest hotel ever. Ocean House, Watch Hill
Quite possibly the most expensive hotel ever too.


Next stop. Iggys. Incredible New England Clam Chowder.
We found it, by mistake, last month when Andrew’s parents were here.
And the doughboys. Amazing.



We went to the top of the hill at the Point Judith Lighthouse. But by this time it was freezing. So we quickly got back in the car.


And we ended the day with a WaterFire.


What a busy, but fun, delicious, yet exhausting day!


  1. What a fun day! Great recap...once again. Mmmm..lobster the roll part, but unsure about the lobster part.
    Sounds like you did a lot of eating. Yum!

  2. Thanks for posting all the pictures from my trip. I had a wonderful time.
