We expected there to be a lobster culture in Maine. But we quickly realized how many lobster boats and buoys dot the water and harbors.
They're everywhere. It's hard to find any expanse of the sea without colorful lobster buoys when you look out to the water.
YOU NEED TO PACK FOR COLD WEATHER, EVEN DURING SUMMER
There were days that it was 70 degrees and the sun was blazing. But then we'd go on a boat tour and the temperature dropped 20 degrees and was windy.
Pack prepared for warm weather and cold weather. Layers are key!
Seafood is abundant in Maine. It's a fishermen state.
The main fish we repeatedly saw on menus was haddock. It's a member of the cod family, but a tad sweeter.
You'll find haddock sandwiches on menus nearly anywhere that serves seafood.
