You guessed it. Lobster roll!
We checked in at Cape Elizabeth’s lovely Inn by the Sea and headed straight to their Sea Glass restaurant for dinner. Our first Maine lobster roll! But not our last…
Next morning we took the first of several walks along the path between the Inn and Crescent State Beach – what a great location.
Then we headed over to Ft. Williams Park to see the famed Portland Headlight lighthouse
and, of course, to pick up another lobster roll at the Bite Into Maine food truck, which seems to be almost as famous as the lighthouse. Half an hour wait in line! And yes, it was worth it!
We would love to have seen more of Maine but given that we had just a few days I think we chose a great destination. Inn by the Sea is a gem, and it’s just a fifteen minute drive from there into Portland, which is known for its restaurant scene. We had a terrific meal at Chaval and as a bonus we were befriended by a neighborhood denizen – our first meeting with a real, no kiddin’ no foolin’ Maine Coon cat.
We completed our stay with a visit to Allagash Brewery
where, of course, we ordered up another lobster roll
It was one of our favorite road trips and I spent most of the flight back conjuring a repeat to pick up all the parts of New England we missed. I hope they save a few lobsters for us – we plan to return!
