Last month my mama and I took a much-needed vacay to Maine. She flew in to Bmore, and we drove north from here.
- First night was spent in NYC, where we ate so much delicious vegan food at Red Bamboo.
- Night number two was in Portland, ME. Mom helped me polish off the sampler at Gritty McDuff's brewery.
- Night three was in Searsport, just outside of Belfast. We stayed in Elm Cottages, a veg'n B&B. If you ever make it to Maine, you MUST stop in and see Janet. The B&B is set in a charming coastal Maine town in a 1800s cottage. She has a massive garden outside. The beds were cozy, but the breakfast was truly phenomenal. Tofu scramble, homemade bread and homemade jams/preserves, granola with soy milk, and good company. Janet was so warm and hospitable. She shares her home with several rescued animals, all of whom were very sweet. Can you tell I liked this place?
- Subsequent Maine nights were spent in Bar Harbor. Would you have ever in a million years though that touristy Bar Harbor would be a vegan mecca? Almost every restaurant has vegan options or a vegan menu. Even the homemade ice cream shop in town square had two soy ice cream flavors!

The time away gave an opportunity to have work done in the casa while I was away. This Vegan House is now This Vegan (Single Lady's) House. Ch-ch-ch-changes were in order. High on the light of priorities was ridding myself of the cat piss soaked carpet (Kitty decided litter boxes were for sissies and that the carpet was preferable.) There were original pine floors under the nasty-rug. However, they were covered in grey lead paint. Grrreat. So, I got some pros (same guys who did the concrete counters I so adore) to come re-do the floors.
