Bugs are cheap this summer for softshells, couple bucks a lb to the boats.
Restaurants are slow to reflect the pricing though..
Swing out to Pemaquid Point Light when you come thru Damariscotta on US1, then go to Shaws Lobster wharf in New Harbor. You'll get the whole experience. Pretty harbor, lobster boats, bait smell, traps, all of it.
Take 32 up to Waldoboro and p/u 1 there. Moody's Dinah right there on 1 also.
Boothbay will be wicked busy this time of year, but almost everywhere on 1 will be all the way to Bar Harbor now. Bar Harbor itself will be busy, but stay on the "backside" around Bass Barbor and N.E Harbor, not as touristy.
Acadia Park ok to get around in. You can get up Cadillac Mtn with no fee, but you have to pay to go around the loop road. Bass Harbor light is right there, thats the one on the quarters.
Not much in Searsport to see, Penobsot Marine Museum maybe, and flea markets. Camden/Rockport are nice. Swing down to the waterfront in Camden
big parking lot, and the harbor usually full of boats and windjammers.
I got pics, but I'm at work. post up some later if you want.
