True shopping isn’t something I really do anymore. We are so spoiled by shopping online, and it’s easier to order away and let everything come to you. However, when I am in a place where there are unique shops to step into, I cannot resist. On our last night in Maine, we walked around Boothbay Harbor a bit, and when I saw the word “silversmith,” I knew we were going in. It turns out that it was Tigger Leather & Silversmith, a two-in-one!

The wall of belts was confusing until we realized that when you buy a belt, it is customized to your size! Will got a great black belt, and the length was cut and holes added to be the perfect size for him.

The leather scent was overwhelming but wonderful. You can see some of the variety of items available here.

I was in love with the decor, which I had ample time to explore while Will had his belt sorted out.

Note the lobster in the center of the bottom shelf.

Another unique experience from Maine. A reminder that I need to find more local businesses in my own area and patronize them. Check out Tigger Leather & Silversmith online here.

On our way to Maine, we met up with our friends Sara and James at Allagash Brewing Company.

At this age, I love nothing more than being carded for a beer tasting.

Admittedly, my palate for beer is not very developed. The tasting notes were really helpful.

A rainbow of beer samples. Allagash Brewing Company has a lovely set of picnic tables outdoors, as well as indoor seating.

Sara and I went inside to check out the interior and to do some shopping.

The interior was really lovely. Dark woods and look at that light fixture!

I was happily surprised to see soap as a product option at a brewery.

We obviously ended up buying beer to take to the house for the weekend ahead.

Not shown here, but the selection of clothing was really great.

It was a lovely first stop of the day. Check out Allagash Brewing Company online here.

The Lobster Dock, Boothbay Harbor, ME | In My Travels

by Jamie Sanford on September 19, 2016

We were super excited to be invited for a quick weekend trip to Maine by our friends Sara and James. On our first day, they suggested stopping at The Lobster Dock for an early dinner. It did not disappoint.

These buoys are a major staple in the decor of coastal Maine.

I was excited to see a hot lobster roll on the menu, and so ordered one. Also, Maine seems to have no lack of root beer, which I also really enjoy.

The smell around this area was of the sea and cooked seafood.

The stunning view of the harbor from our table was quintessential Maine. Naturally, we scarfed down all of the food, including my amazing lobster roll, before I had a chance to take a photo.

More views before we left!

This was the line as we were leaving. We arrived at just the right time to avoid a long wait. However, I understand why it was there, our food was delicious. I definitely recommend a stop at The Lobster Dock if you are ever in the Boothbay Harbor area.

Your partnership provides you with a minimum of 13 gourmet lobster dinners delivered anywhere in the country with free shipping! (Over 52 1.5lb. lobsters, clams, mussels, desserts, and more). As a partner, you will be assigned a private lobsterman that will fish your trap all season.

You can Catch a Piece of Maine for a mere $2,995.
