Eye on Travel — Maine — July 30, 2022
This week’s broadcast of Eye on Travel — from Southwest Harbor in Maine and Beal’s Lobster Pier. I have all the latest travel updates, from airport and baggage meltdowns in London, Frankfurt and Amsterdam; to “miracle flights” and a scam from some passengers to get to the head of the line; to the somewhat strange requests from some flight attendants asking for a two drink minimum for coach passengers; Kevin B. Schneider, Superintendent of Acadia National Park, stops by with a report on this very special destination and how it (and you) can weather the hot messy summer of 2022. I talk lobster with veteran lobster fisherman Nahum Kelly about the legendary crustaceans, and Sue Bernier of the Island Institute shares her fears for the future lobster population and how we can do our part to ensure it doesn’t dwindle. Director Michael Pressman (Law and Order, Bluebloods, Chicago Med) on why he moved to Maine and why he stays. Stu Snyder, Owner of Beal’s Lobster Pier, talks about his own unexpected full circle trip from the world of television and sports back to a childhood favorite which has been around since 1932. When the going gets tough, the tough head for…lobster rolls! And, as always, I answer your travel questions. There’s all this and more as this week’s Eye on Travel drops anchor at Beal’s Lobster Pier in Southwest Harbor Maine.
