    OK, so I’m still digesting (literally!) a two-week trip to Maine.  This end-of-summer hurrah was an omnivore’s delight and a true Local Goodness adventure.  We feasted daily on local lobster, clams, haddock, shrimp and wild blueberries.  Maine in August is the perfect time to eat your way up and down the coast, especially when daily hikes along the rocky shores treat you with a mass of Maine’s specialty — the wild Maine blueberry.  As my mind clears and my belly recedes I’ll add more including our adventure with a lobster fisherman and hikes on fog shrouded Cadillac Mountain. Suffice it to say, although this was our first trip to this magnificent state, it will certainly not be our last!If you’re heading down east, book some time with Captain Robertson to get a full Maine experience!  Visit Robertson Sea Tours for more info!
