I rode to Eastport on Thursday. It was a lovely day. I rode around, saw a few deer, had an appointment and treated myself to a lobster roll at the take out at the which will be closing October 9th. I watched the ferry come in and out and fishing boats. The Coast Guard was just going out. 

Patsy Beckett and her crew will be cutting up apples on Friday morning at St. Anne’s Parish Hall and making the pies. Patsy is just like the energy battery, never stops. We are so lucky to have her. She also made the quilt for the raffle. Applefest is a great time of fellowship, food and fun raising for the church. It begins at 7:00 a.m. with breakfast.

For upcoming pumpkin carving: A fish scaler is an excellent tool for cleaning the inside of a pumpkin. It removes string pulp in a jiffy.

A large crowd was in attendance at the historical meeting. Whitlock Mill Lighthouse was the topic. Brand Livingstone was the emcee with the help of Al Churchill. Very interesting in our back dooryard all those years.


A lovely Sunday service at Baring Baptist Church on Jonah followed by a pot luck. A great variety of dishes and cakes, blueberry squares, homemade bread, etc.
