Maine Getaway

This was the second time that Mr. H and I have traveled to Maine, and it won't be our last. A quick flight in to Boston, and then driving up the coast checking out small town after small town...it's incredibly relaxing. And, delicious. I'm a seafood nut. I could live on seafood and fish. Although, I'd miss bacon, and a good steak.

We've headed there at this time of year to attend the Annual Maine Lobster Festival.
It's soft-shelled lobster season, and you can literally rip them apart with your hands. The annual festival includes food, games, crafts, rides, a parade, beer and wine tasting event, cooking competition, and more. It's a lot of fun, and we'll go back.

We literally ate a lobster roll for lunch every day of the trip. Mr. H seemed determined to find the "best" one. I wasn't complaining.
This trip, the "best" was definitely from Bob's Clam Hut in Kittery, ME. Red's Eats was a close second. Although, we still feel like the Connecticut style roll from Fisherman's Grill that we had last year is the top roll we've tried. And at this point, we've tried almost every roll from Boston to Belfast, ME that has made some sort of "top list" out there. I'm not ashamed. Every bite was heaven.

We also feasted on oysters almost daily.
Straight out of the sea, it doesn't get any better.

Maine is a great 4-5 day trip from Cleveland, and I can't rave about it enough. Mr. H and I both walk away each time feeling relaxed and happy. As any vacation should leave you feeling.

Now, I'm still craving seafood though...
