Now that you know where lobsters come from, Virginia, why not try one? Also, while in Maine you simply must try the clam chowder. Ah, the way life should be. Ayuh.
Lobsters do not come from supermarkets or vending machines like the one shown here. Hardworking fishermen and women are up at the crack, hauling lobsters onto their boats for our eating pleasure.
Cape Porpoise is a small lobstering village near Kennebunkport. Tourists do come here to take pictures but Cape Porpoise is far from a touristy place.
Walk out onto the pier and admire the picturesque scenery of lobster boats, fishermen hard at work, and Goat Island Light in the distance. This place whispers poetry in your ear, it's that charming.

Good for: Business
Considering the fact that Pier 77 is a stone’s throw away from working fisherman one might expect the menu to be abundant with seafood selections. Although lobster and clam chowder make an appearance on the lunch menu, there was a good amount of landlubber fare. This is not a touristy restaurant; nearby Kennebunkport has plenty of those. We had a window seat with a lovely view of the water and a most charming rickety boat.
Favorite Dish: We started off with a divine, and rather large, Caesar salad. Cory got the chicken tacos which were incredibly fresh and I opted for the lobster roll which was fantastic.
Favorite thing: If you've read some of our other tips you may have noticed we have a bunch of mason-related pictures. I won't go into why here but I will say that the masons are everywhere, including Cape Porpoise.
