“One of my favorite things is to go for a swim in Great Bay in late morning and then have lunch at the Lobster Pot. I love that you can come right out of the sea, order seafood that’s just as fresh, and eat it under the thatch outside on the beach wrapped in a towel. Bring backgammon! If you go for dinner, you can call your order in ahead. Lobster Pot 876-965-3583.”
