The Mermaid Pub in Searsport, Maine is a part of the bed and breakfast where I'm spending my last night on the road. The owners have set aside for me a special dessert of bread pudding!
My last night's rest was at this Inn in Searsport built about 1860 by Captain John Nichols. At one time, ten percent of all sea captains in the United States lived in this small seafaring town.

Brother and sister, the owners of Homeport Inn, gave me a warm welcome and treated me with great kindness. Thank you Anita and Herb!
