The cribstone bridge is being completely rebuilt in the traditional method

A visiting day, which we braced ourselves for by ordering a hearty breakfast at an old friend, the Freeport Café.  Right on Route 1, south of Freeport (it is actually closer to Yarmouth), this swell eatery hasn’t lost a step over the years and continues to serve up scrumptious omelets and other morning classics with a Maine twist.  Our daughter loves this place because she always orders the “big as your head” cinnamon roll which I don’t believe she has ever finished at one sitting.  She never would finish today’s cinnamon roll as she left her doggie bag behind when we pushed off to visit friends on Orr’s Island.


Basically gabbed at a friend’s house all day so not much to report.  Of course we ate lunch at Cook’s Lobster House, but I wrote a review on that amazing restaurant several years ago so nothing to add.  I had also reviewed the Cribstone Bridge linking Bailey and Orr’s islands, but this does require an update.  They are completely rebuilding this unique bridge, a project which has taken eighteen months thus far and is finally getting on towards completion.  They built a temporary bridge right beside the original so Bailey Island isn’t severed from the world.


Departed Orr’s Island around 4:30PM and headed back south to Yarmouth where we had dinner at another friends place.  A fun day of catching up!
