In Search of Lobsters

25 August 2017 | Frenchboro, Long Island, ME
We got underway yesterday morning for a week of cruising with a forecast of continuous clear dry weather with daily temperatures in the high sixties and low seventies for the entire period - we shall see. Our first destination was Lunt Harbor in Frenchboro on Long Island, about 30 miles east of Camden. Rich's sister Andrea and her husband Ben were also out on his boat, Gizmo, and we planned to have lobsters together on the harbor dock at Lunt's Lobster Deli. Unfortunately when we arrived ashore together at 5 pm we saw a handwritten note on the door saying that for the next two weeks they would only be open for lunch until they close for the season on Labor Day. We then decided to meet there for lunch today and this morning discovered a new handwritten note saying closed today due to no help available. We did enjoy a very scenic two hour hike around the island during which we learned from a local that today was the one day that two ferries were scheduled to and from the island so that the Deli help was probably taking advantage of being able to shop on the mainland and return on the same day as there is no shopping on the island. Rather than wait to see if the Deli would really open tomorrow we moved on to Little Cranberry Island this afternoon and had a really nice meal at their Dock restaurant with our neighbors from Camden, Evelyn and Harvey, who live here in the summer. The picture is looking southeast as we hiked around Long Island.
