Maine is famous for its seafood, and that’s what we ate on our Maine road trip. From New York, we took a train to Boston, rented a car, and spent the night in northern Massachusetts.
We sought out a nearby lobster pound and had these two lobsters for $17.
The next day we had 2 lobsters and steamed clams at the Harraseeket Lobster Pound after shopping at factory outlets in Freeport, Maine. Harraseeket is the lobster pound we always visit in Maine. We like to eat at lobster pounds on the ocean, where the lobsters have a constant supply of sea water. These lobsters seem to taste better.
The next day we returned to the Fisherman’s Grill in Portland for a lobster roll and fish and chips. The lobster roll is best for folks who don’t want to get their hands dirty shelling the lobster and digging out the meat. We prefer the whole lobsters but usually have a lobster roll for variety.
The next day we drove back to Boston and returned home to California.
