August 17, 2014 Coast of Maine

Today we headed to Maine.  We drove to Newburyport, MA and had lunch at Michael’s Harborside restaurant.  We shared a lobster roll and a dish with lobster and mascarpone cream.  Both were delicious but expensive for small portions.
Our next stop was  in Portsmouth, NH for ice cream and we walked around the town and the port.  We then stopped at Bath, ME at a tourist info center.  We had to take a picture of the train station that was the tourist info place because my sister, Janice, lives in Bath, SD. 

We decided to drive down one of the peninsulas to the coast and spend the night at Pemaquid Point in the Hotel Pemaquid.  We had a room on the second floor of a small building that looked like a lobster house.  We drove to New Harbor and had dinner at Shaw’s lobster house.  We had lobsters and clams.  Dave’s was 2 lbs, mine was between 1 and 1 1/4 lb at $14/lb.  They were delicious, the best we have ever had.  We returned to the hotel and sat in lobby of the main building with a fireplace and antiques.  Very cozy.
