Summer Vacation: Day 4
the Portland Head Light and it rained on us! But it made for very scenic, windswept and overcast seas.
Maine Potters Market. I love handmade pottery!
Silly's, an awesome place with TONS of vegan options. I have to give a shout-out to Mike for finding some GREAT places to eat. He always tries to plan ahead (if possible) and make sure they have something interesting for me, so sweet! It was such a cold and rainy day that I started off with their “Homegrown” loose tea blend. It was mainly mint, with coconut and pomegranate. Very tasty!
Jim's Ice Cream for a treat! Mike's eating his triple scoop come with Mocha Carmela by the Sea, Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl and Grapenut. I tasted the Grapenut ice cream, a flavor we knew to expect but were still shocked by how prevalent it is on the East Coast! To me it was meh, nothing to write home about. I had a double scoop cone with Candy Bar World and Chocolate Cookie Monster. Dinner was unremarkable calzones at this place in Natick. No picture. They were big, but not terribly great. The owner was nice and made me a whole wheat crust calzone even thought you're only supposed to be able to get a large pizza with that crust. But the end product (mine had caramelized onions, marinated artichoke, capers, fresh basil, goat cheese and kalamata olives on it) could have used WAY more toppings and was overpriced for what it was. I missed my fresh, bean-topped salad!
