On Saturday, after visiting the 18th Annual Monson Arts Council Art Exhibition & Sale (where we were inspired by the art and impressed with the hot and cold hors d'oeuvres from Johnsens Catering), Susan and I journeyed to a nearby restaurant which is located in an historic Railroad Station. It is named Steaming Tender Restaurant and there is a Vintage 1915 Porter Steam Locomotive right outside the front door!
