( Bem que eu já tive oportunidade de provar lagosta, mas eu fiquei com pena...acho ela muito simpática! São "foolish things" da Léia!!)

Just waiting there for my dinner to jump in them. I never thought about how they were caught.

Lobster traps look very quaint and picturesque on the docks in your area, as they do in Maine and Nova Scotia, but I am sure that it is very hard work to go out and run the traps in cold weather and rough seas.

Lovely blue! Those pots remind me of my childhood fishing lobster and crab on the Atlantic!

Our lobster season ended on April 1. Most lobstering is done in the Keys, about 100 miles south of here.

It's interesting to see food at it's source.

These traps are actually very lovely. And is this not the bluest water ever?

Sharon said...

Gorgeous photo. The color of the water is amazing.

Great shot, JM. Wouldn't lobster fishing (trapping) be less difficult in your waters (warmer) than, say, off the coast of Massachusetts?
