Frenchboro, Long Island

21 July 2011
We are now moored in Lunt Harbor, Frenchboro, Long Island. This seemingly remote island lies only 8 miles from Mount Desert Island but could be a world away. Apparently there are about 70 islanders who live in this lobstering community year round . We can only guess what it must be like here in the Winter - it certainly seems remote and wild enough in the Summer. There is a lot of activity on the lobster wharf, a cluster of houses around the harbor and not much else. There is a seasonal restaurant providing lobster rolls to visiting boaters but no general store. A ferry to the mainland runs every other week! Otherwise the islanders have to be self sufficient. Most of the island is undeveloped and is now conserved land. A wonderful system of trails has been cut and is maintained by the Maine Coast Heritage Trust. We have spent a happy two days here hiking the trails, buying fresh lobster to steam on Osprey and eating lobster rolls for lunch - we feel we have to do our bit to help the island's economy!
