Sunday looks like it could be a sunny one – the perfect time to hit up your favorite seasonal spots before the tourists arrive. Why not pair fresh seafood with a stroll? You could walk around Two Lights State Park in Cape Elizabeth, then have lunch or dinner The Lobster Shack at Two Lights, just down the road, or you could hit up Ken’s Place in Scarborough for some fried clams, followed by a beach walk at Pine Point.
