One evening this past summer my sister and brother in law, who were visiting from Connecticut, took us out to a lobster and clam feed at Young’s Lobster Pound in East Belfast. It’s located on the eastern shore of Belfast Bay almost directly behind Perry’s Tropical Nut House. Young’s is a very popular spot for the Rt.1 traveler and from their wharf you get a great view of the Belfast waterfront. The big thing that’s happening is the new Front Street Shipyard with its 165 ton capacity mobile boat lift, boat building shops and boat storage facilities. It’s located on the former Stinson Cannery property which of course now is another one of those Maine businesses relegated to the “I remember when” category .
The harbor was flat calm and we enjoyed a fine outside dining experience while observing the happenings of the now busy Belfast waterfront.
