A bathroom for the ages.

.

We have a master bath in need of a major update and renovation. While cruising the net for inspiration I saw this:

.

.

I think I’m going to have a hard time talking the husband into this…

.

.

But you have to admit it’s pretty spectacular.

.

.

To heck with shopping that mall….

.

.

I’ll just hang out in the ladies room and pour myself a cocktail.

😉

.

In which we discover another drinking barn…

.

The husband and I have been trying to find a new place to eat (and drink) . If I can’t travel to far off places? At least I can visit new bars.

Enter the Barnhouse Grill and Pub.

.

.

Husband found an old washing machine at the entrance, which thankfully wasn’t for sale.

.

.

This is a relatively new place remodeled from an old seafood market. It’s rustic and takes the barn theme seriously.

.

.

Chickens and cows were plentiful, as were the bartender’s pours. It’s not often I call it quits at two margaritas… but I did that day in an effort not to fall off my stool.

The decor was down home country with a sense of humor, and when the husband came back from the men’s room requesting my phone, I knew it would be good.

.

.

Keg urinals. The ultimate in recycling.

.

.

There was also another antique washing machine, complete with rooster.

This got me curious what the ladies room had to offer so in I went, phone camera ready.

.

.

Thankfully this wasn’t the only toilet. But aside from more chickens that was about it. Not nearly as much fun as the men’s room.

.

.

I’d like to tell you I took pictures of the wonderful chili, the strange but quite tasty macaroni and cheese bites, and the fabulous charbroiled mushroom Swiss burger we ate, but I didn’t.

All I managed at the end of my second killer ‘Rita was one shot of the Philly cheesesteak egg rolls. Weird? Yes. But also really, really good.

.

.

They’re not lying.

I was definitely happy when we left.

.

When ya gotta go….

.

Sometimes you just have to go. Which, when on the road during a global pandemic, can be a challenge.

Yesterday the husband had to physically enter his office for the first time since March to pick up some paperwork, so we took the scenic route which added a half hour to the hour long drive. The sun was shining, the leaves were turning…. life was good. Until those 2 large glasses of iced tea I had with lunch kicked in.

I don’t know what’s it like in your part if the world, but here in Maine a lot of the convenience stores, gas stations and fast food places have closed their rest rooms to customers for fear of spreading the virus.

It took us 4 stops to find a Burger King that welcomed people with full bladders. And by the look of the pictures on the doors? I wasn’t the only one in dire need.
