We were planning to go to the rocky coast of Maine this summer but the below article has us rethinking our plans.

On the other hand the below comment is from my nephew a professor at the University of Maine:

“This article is *such* garbage. The lobster shack they interview – Red’s in Wiscassett – is the biggest tourist trap in the state.  They’re starting the season with $26 lobster rolls because they can!  Up here, eating at McLaughlin’s by the big oil tanks, a roll won’t cross $10 this summer (I don’t think).  Nobody would go if they charged $20.  But I bet they’re near $30 down in Acadia/Bar Harbor.  Sheesh.”

I kind of like the idea of eating near the oil tanks.
