1. A fish and chips shack right on the dock in Ketchikan. DH and I shared a basket of halibut and fries TEN years ago, and we still talk about it. I understand that they have expanded and moved off the dock but we will find them again, should we ever get back there.
2. Two years ago in Guernsey we got off the bus from a shore-ex and were going to take the tender back to the ship. There was a large crowd and it started to rain so we ran for a small coffee shop type place just down the street. They had a sign out for lobster salad so we ordered two of those. They didn't take credit cards or, usually, US money but they asked us to wait while they called the bank for the conversion. All was well and it was the most amazing salad we ever had. Huge, with eggs, beets, everything you could put on a salad plus an enormous serving of lobster. It ended up costing $40 for lunch for the two of us and was worth every penny.

A. a lobster kabob on Goff's Cay Belize's barrier islands. We had been snorkeling for a while, and this young man had a grill going, doing lobster kabobs, and heating beans and corn in the can right on the grill. Hunger is the best seasoning. The view of the end of the world was fantastic (goff's cay is the last island in the chain, after that you got ocean until you get to Africa)That's where I'm going! and I hope they have lobsters available that day! Can't wait.
