My Travels to the Land of Lobster

I just got back from my weeklong road trip to Maine, the land of lobster. I was proud of myself for one reason, and it’s not for my enormous appetite. Growing up in New York City and living there for my entire life, I haven’t had to drive that much, yet I managed to drive roughly 1000 miles and keep my parent’s car intact. While planning my trip, I contemplated flying to Maine and decided against it as I wanted to experience the thrill of a road trip.

My friend and I stopped in Kennebunkport for 2 nights and made a day trip to Portland and Cape Elizabeth. We then made our way to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, which was the highlight of my trip.

I’ll be honest with you. I wanted to visit Acadia, but my intention for visiting Maine was the food. Throughout our journey, we stuffed our faces with seafood, focusing primarily on lobster. I will only post pictures of food with lobster in this blog entry, so be warned, if you don’t like lobster you won’t enjoy these pictures. Refrain from scrolling down!

Full lobster with boiled corn – I managed to crack the lobster by myself and not make a complete mess either!

    This brings back happy memories of going to the Lobster Pound with my grandparents. Thanks for sharing the photos!

    Heading to Portland, Me. in 4 weeks to see our youngest son. I’ve told him we’ll be eating a considerable amount of lobster. 🙂 You can find it at the harbor for $3.89/lb.
