New Hampshire trip

Back from my short vacation to New Hampshire. I had a great time. It was really nice to be back in New England, fresh air, rocky coast, familiar faces, and good memories. Interestingly, Concord had a number of good vegan options.

Thursday was the coast day. We went near Portsmouth and found a spot to park where Tofu the Whale lived. Weird. We did not get to see Tofu since there was a admission fee that neither Emily nor I was interested in paying. We found some fun walking trails and an old building that had been painted. I climbed it of course.
On our way back to Concord we found this awesome vegan restaurant on the side of the road in the middle of no where, Susty's Cafe. We got soy fritters and tofu fries as appetizers. Emily had a seitan salad and I had to rock the shepherds pie. For dessert she had a cookie and I got cake. I forgot to take a picture of the cake before I ate it...as you can see, it was yummy!

Friday we had lunch at Cafe Indigo. The server was kind of a clown but the food was decent. I had a tofufish sandwich and Emily had a quesadilla. Then we took a trip to a lake in north central New Hampshire. We walked around a little town and sat at the water. There were a lot of boats and it was then that I realized how much colder New England is then Georgia. That night Emily and I met up with her friend Amanda and we were off to the casino. Emily won some money and we went to see Halloween 2. It was okay, nothing exceptional. Then it was to Portsmouth and the Friendly Toast! My old stomping ground.

Sat was rainy and was a food, movies, conversation day. Sunday was the Boston trip. We went to get some food at Grasshopper. It was always a food spot when going to shows in the Boston area. I had fungus soup, and bar-b-que seitan pork salad. Emily had fried chicken salad and we split some tofu chicken fingers. We tried the cheesecake for dessert but it was not good.

My flight was cancelled when I got to the airport but I finagled my way back to Atlanta with only an hour delay and a few mins lay over in DC.
