Help with Lenses choice for trip to Maine

I'm going up to Maine for the holiday weekend, I will visit the Zoo, National Park,and do some lobster hatching. I'm planning to bring my auto lens on the trip, please give me some tips which are better suited.

1) Tamron 28-200mm f3.8 Macro

2) DA 40mm (or Kit lens II) with Tamron 70-300mm Macro

Aim at what suits your fancy, frame it, and trip the shutter--and have a great time.

Seriously, I am jealous. Maine is a fantastic state in which to shoot. Which National Park are you visiting--Acadia? If so, the seascapes are beautifully captured at wider angles.

I was a few weeks in Maine last summer, and found that used my Pentax 16-45 most of the time, mainly boats and ladscapes, and was quite happy with the results
