Belfast, Maine

A charming, waterfront town on Penobscot Bay with a vibrant downtown, Belfast is walkable, comfortable and full of interesting architecture, art and history in a very relaxed, low key setting.

I happened upon their Classic Small Boat show as a part of the Belfast Harbor Fest while visiting last August.

Wouldn’t you want to get your fuel from a company that looked like this?

And then…I discovered the Moonbat City Baking Company…with the most wonderful cinnamon rolls and croissants made by the welcoming master pastry chef owner, Michelle Berry, who graciously invited me to tour around as she spoke of her life changing move to Belfast as a baker, from her former career as a culinary arts instructor in the Boston area.

After spending some time there, I could easily see why one would enjoy living in Belfast.  It’s on my list.
