lobster police

Oh, it turned out to be such a beautiful evening yesterday. The ocean took on a pale blue as the rain & winds died down. Once we saw how pretty it looked we had to go down for a drive to Devonshire Bay. One of the smallest beaches if you can call it that, but a popular spot for fisherman to sell their catch, which as of this month also includes lobsters.

Lobster season is here! Yay! We will be sure to scout those fisherman so we can bring home a lobster this year. It'll be pricey but so worth every penny. Last year, LadyBug graciously gave us one and it was delish! Boiled to
perfection in just 12 minutes, accompanied with some garlic butter - yum doesn't even begin to describe it.

If by chance you do catch a lobster, you're to throw it back, unless you have a lobster fishing license or you'd be shelling a hefty fine of $2,000 USD. Even if you do have a license you are permitted to have no more than 2 lobsters in your freezer, at any time. We've heard of some that have caught one & not thrown it back or a certain licensed someone who last season had eight in his freezer. I bet they're not expecting the lobster police to actually show up on their doorstep checking to see if they comply. If we ever catch one, we're keeping it. And if who so ever wants to arrest us, alls I can say is that they better have a warrant!
