Maine: Breakwater Lighthouse

Our first day in Maine I took the kids to Breakwater Lighthouse while Brian got a little r&r.  It was a mile each way down the granite breakwater that was constructed in the late 1800's.  Oliver slept in the ergo on my back and Isabella was as energetic as ever.

While traveling on the breakwater we saw lobster boats pulling up their traps, individuals fishing for mackerel off the breakwater, sailboat races and a whole lot of other people taking the journey.

For a bit of perspective: this is at the beginning of our walk; the lighthouse is in the background.  Can you see it?

Maine: McLaughlin's Lobster Shack

Our first Maine lobster was from McLaughlins Lobster Shack in Lincolnville.  The gal behind the counter taught us all about large vs. small vs. soft shell lobsters.  And she pointed to "Mike's boat" in the small harbor just outside the shack.  Mike is the fisherman who brought in the lobster earlier that day.  That's what I call fresh fish!

Below is a photo of my handsome boys in front of "Mike's boat".
