Maine is famous for its lobsters and catching them is an everyday occurrence here on the Maine Coast. However, for a couple of tourists from Ohio, we found it fascinating to be able to watch the lobstermen pulling up their traps and emptying them into their boats.

At several points along the coast on Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park we saw lobstermen at work. More than once we paused for several minutes to watch. It may be hard, dirty work to those trapping the lobsters, but to us it is an exotic and romantic occupation.
