Frenchboro news

Lots of new doings in Frenchboro, a fishng village on Long Island, eight miles off Mt. Desert.

• First things first, the date of this year’s Lobster Festival: Saturday, Aug. 8, 2009. The Maine State Ferry service makes  a special run that day for visitors to take part in the festivities and enjoy a lobster dinner, served 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. All proceeds benefit the Outer Long Island Congregational Church.

• The Frenchboro Bakery: Baked goods (biscotti, whoppie pies, cookies), jams and jellies, and handmade chocolates (truffles! caramels, filled chocolates, English toffee).

• The Offshore Store and More: The basics and then some, including brownies, stews, lobster rolls, sandwiches, homemade pies, live lobsters (cooked at no charge) and more. Also a rental cottage.

Of course, Lunt’s Dockside Deli (a treasure)  is still going strong, and I  highly recommend taking Kim Strauss’s  Morning Lunch Cruise to Frenchboro, departing from Bass Harbor, as a perfect way top sample the island.

    Thank You for the mention! The Offshore Store celebrated its Grand Opening yesterday with raffles and prizes and a s’mores-fest, and will continue this evening with all that and a pinata for the kiddos! We hope you will stop in when visiting Frenchboro!

    Good luck to you! I’ll definitely stop by if I make it out this summer.
